the proofs can be seen in the 5th picture down if you click on the link above. i tried to post just the one picture in this thread, but was not able to do it. i am definitely not a technology expert

BAHAHA!!! just before siting down to the computer, i was handling the rifle and the last thing i though was, "MY ross was a gift from Sir Charles himself!"

sure do wish i could prove it some way. it would represent the one and only good personal transaction i have ever made. Grin

ah, gotcha! Grin

btw - finally learned what "which side of the razor wire means. i am happily sitting way down south of the razor wire, wearing shorts and a tee shirt right now.

this rifle came from across the pond.

does that mean it is ok for me to start cutting it up for the action and other parts!?! Grin

the guy in scotland wasn't talking about altering an original rifle, whereas i am. and i want to shoot it and will likely want a different front site, so my post is really unchanged by the fact it has been shown here before. any info on folks who have changed sites or compensated for POA/POI in any way would be greatly appreciated by me!!!

my rifle is an SDS and not an m10. it has the single fixed 1-500yd site. it looks like a large triangle when viewed from the side.

i have read what "side of the razor wire" mentioned here, but i honestly have no idea what yall are talking about. i do have a standard 4-strand barb wire fence running right beside my driveway. i am currently in my lay-z-boy in my living room , enjoying the air conditioning. so i guess i am on the "cool" side of the wire???

and for all of those to whom i gave the hee-bee-geebies when i mentioned altering the rifle, please relax. i am (well, was) a custom gunmaker and always was buying rifles for the actions or sometimes other parts all of the time.

HOWEVER - i have NEVER messed with a cherry collectible, even if i had absolutely zero interest in collecting it. to the contrary, you can find posts on the internet where i begged others not to cut up good rifles if they were collected by someone, somewhere. offered to trade them actions or whatever in order to keep the good ones in one piece. you can even find posts where i got pretty hot about it with a person or two.

but on the SDS, all i have to do is take the front site out, make a new one the size and style that i want, and keep the original site in the safe. so nothing collectible will be hurt.

9  Commerical Sporter Discussion / Sporters / need help forming .280 ross from .375 ruger cases on: January 20, 2017, 10:47:28 PM
i am a long time reloader, but brand new to the .280 ross. i was wondering if i could get any advice or pointers when it came to forming ,280 from .375 ruger. can it be formed as simply as running the ruger case through the ross die, or do i need intermediate steps? if so, what are they and what additional forming dies do i need?

will the necks need to thinned or annealed afterwards?

should any prep work be done on the .375 case before beginning?

i have read the behemoth of a reloading thread on this forum, but it started 7 years ago and too much has changed since then for me to add a new post on the end. from where i sit it looked liked starting a new thread about reloading .375 ruger brass in this current time of NO .280 ross brass would be the best thing to do to help me and other newcomers to the round

thanks for your help!

i am the proud new owner of an SDS and plan to  hunt with it. not often, but every now and then. my rifles has the fixed 1-500 yd site.

i know all about rifles sited for a "fine bead." i am looking for something more practical to use, and more importantly something easier for my eyes to see.

i am thinking about finding a load i like and then put a larger white or silver bead in the front site, zeroed for 2" high at 100yds. that will shoot where i can hold dead nuts on for farther than i would shoot with iron sites.

has anyone else gone this route? if so, what did you try and what did you end up with?

hello board, this is my first post!

i was wondering if anyone has checked into getting someone to make a small round of proper .280 ross brass. with supply drying up so recently, someone is bound to have good forming dies and the ability to make a relatively small run. if a group got together we could float the project.

has anyone looked into this?

is anyone interested in the idea?


ps - i have been looking for brass to no avail. does anyone have suggestions of where to look?

so far i have ordered some .375 ruger brass

congratulations on the rifle! i missed buying it by just a few days, so you know i think you got a keeper! please keep us posted on how she shoots and any hunts with her.

woodleigh makes great bullets that i have used with great satisfaction in the field. they make the "oversize" 7mm bullets that you seek.
