Load data for caliber ".280 Rem."
The .280 Remington is a popular centerfire rifle cartridge designed in the 1950s by Remington Arms Company. It is based on a necked down .30-06 Springfield, and therefore shares the same casing dimensions and operates at extremely similar velocities.

The .280 Rem is well-suited for medium to large game hunting at extended ranges due to its excellent ballistics. It features flat trajectories, high velocity, and relatively mild recoil compared to other magnum cartridges of similar dimensions. It is also capable of excellent accuracy with good quality barrels and load development techniques used by handloaders.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
