The .280 Remington is still so popular that most American rifle makers have a .280 Rem in their catalogue. With good shot placement, the .280 Rem is suitable for hunting any game in North America. In the hands of an expert shooter, and if the rate-of-twist is correct for the projectile, the .280 Rem can be effective out to 1,000 yds.
In recent years, the availability of high ballistic coefficient 7mm bullets has reinvigorated interest in the .280 Rem.
