A reloader can choose from a great selection of traditional and high-tech 7mm bullets - from 100 to 175 grains. Highly accurate cup-and-core, polymer-tipped and Partition bullets cover most bases, and new bonded bullets and several lead-free projectiles add to the .280's versatility.

In 1873, the U.S. Army adopted a new service handgun and cartridge, the legendary Colt Single Action Army pistol and the equally iconic .45 Colt. The round was originally loaded with a 255-grain lead bullet over 40 grains of FFg black powder for a velocity of about 900 fps.
