280 Whisper Loads

Does anyone have any specific "whisper" loads for the 280 Rem? I am looking for something around 1,000 fps from a 24" barrel . Either cast or condom bullets.

I don't have any personal experience with the kind of load you're looking for, but I note that the Speer (#14) Reloading Manual lists some reduced loads for the 280. For example, it lists 21.0 grs of SR 4759 with the 145 grain bullet for a muzzle velocity of 1689 ft/sec out of their 24" test barrel.

Good luck in your quest.
