TS, Most likely you will end up getting the best results with a 140 gr. "QUALITY" bullet in your .280. I will tell you that I loaded a batch of 150 gr. Nosler Partitions for my nephew in new Remington brass using 51 gr of IMR 4350 using CCI 200 primers back in 1995 when Nosler projectiles were in short supply.
He is using a Browning A Bolt. He will not let me tinker with his load to this day!
WORK UP THIS LOAD VERY CAREFULLY
HTH

.280 Rem. is my favorite caliber. I have two of them and have been reloading for .280 since 1962. After a lot of experimentation, and a lot of game killed, (elk down to ground squirrels), I've settled on two loads (for many years, now), and they are...

160 gr. Nosler Partition, 54.0 grains IMR4350, CCI L.R. primers.

139 gr. Hornady Interlock, 56.0 grains IMR4350, CCI L.R. primers.

Both of these loads shoot 3/4" groups, hot or cold, rain or shine, altitude or sea level, in my two bolt rifles, with 22" bbls.

Don't know what they'd do in anyone else's.

FWIW. J.B.
