well in my neck of the woods here in East Texas, the 280 Remington is a rare thing and after researching them over ten to twelve years ago when talking about rifle calibers with my father, i was on the hunt for a rifle in 280. well ia found one last year after many years of searching gun stores, pawn shops and gun shows. it became more of a quest after my fondness for 7mm calibered rifles came into play. so i was like a pig in slop when i found this older Ruger M77V in 280 Remington, (circa 1978 DOM). all original, even had the factory Ruger rings, 24" heavy barrel and it cost me $470 at my LGS.
