You could just order the Nosler brass Graf & Sons has it.

I've done ff with nothing but powder and used various amounts of pistol/shotgun powder with no projectile and the barrel pointed straight up. It formed pretty well but for a 280 I would just buy the factory stuff.

Why would you fire form anything when Nosler makes premium 280 AI brass already?

I have always used a starting load of one of the fastest burning powders listed for the parent round with a heavy for caliber bullet jammed into the lands. Brass comes out fine. You will find that described in lots of manuals.
