Then hotrod away.For hunting I don't put enough rounds done field per year to worry about brass life - just safety.
on an aside though, another reason not to base an entire build on cartridge that must operate near 100% of its capabilities to meet your requirements is related to tuning. You may find that the cartridge can hit the velocity you’re looking for, but the accuracy node is below your velocity goal, and you’re unable to hit the next node above it. With a 280AI, you’ll like have multiple accuracy nodes above your minimum muzzle velocity. The same can be said of seating depth. You may be able to meet your velocity goals with a smaller cartridge if you seat the bullet long to spare case capacity, but find that your bullet shoots best with more jump, and thus lose your ability to put enough powder in the case.
