Re: Load info and input for the .308 BAER.
Have had 3 or 4 308 Baers over the years shooting at Williamsport and the load I used in them were;
1. 75 to 77 Gr of RL22 with the 220 Gr Sierra MK bullets.
2. 80 and 81 Gr of H1000 with the 220 Gr Sierra MK
Ironically, since I switched to the 300 Weatherby (in 4 guns) for my 1000 yd shooting, I use the SAME accuracy loads I did in the Baer. The 308 Baer has a bit more overall powder capacity which for hunting, can be loaded a little hotter.
The 240 I did not shoot in the Baer but in the 300 Weatherby, 75.5 Grs of 4831 SC seems to do well.
I have also found that any increase in powder charges other then all the listed loads above will stretch primer pockets after 3 or 4 loadings. At least they do to the Norma brass that I have.
