Comments:

* I did 12 reps on the last set once again to test my strength. However, this time I barely made the last rep. I hope to go up in weight the next workout as I would like to break my current 1 rep max PR of 280 lbs.

Using a 1 rep max calculator 12 reps with 200 lbs is equal to a 280 lb 1 rep max. However, this set was performed last and not first. If I did my first set to failure after warming up I am sure I could have done at least 15 reps.
