Inroduced by Reminton in 1955 as the 7mm Express to compete with Winchester's .270.
Unfortunatly, they introduced it in an autoloder, and they saw it as a varmint round, and loaded factory loads accordingly, so it was doomed. They re-introduced it as the .280 some time later, but it still hasn't caught on to the point some think it should have.
And I will tell you that you got a good deal. That scope is worth upwards of $200 new (Cabelas has 279 or 299, depending on finish)
"No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the Legislature is in session."
The .280 is very similar to the .30-06 in performance. That alone says a lot. I like it better as the 7mm bullet has a better sectional density in the midweights. It's capable of taking all non-dangerous game in N.A.

The .280 Remington is indeed a fine big game cartridge. It is right between the .270 Win. and the 30-06Spfd. in ballistics .(Which is really a very good place .) This cartridge has long been underrated but is truly an outstanding choice for hunting!! Good Luck and Good Hunting!!! FLATPICKER
