 · The .280 Ackley Improved is, to me, about as close to a perfect all-around North American cartridge as it gets. The primary difference between the standard .280 Rem. and the .280 Ackley Improved is the steeper 40 degree, which lengthens the case body and allows for about 5 percent more powder capacity.
