Emailing Bruce Baer is like buying a lottery ticket. Same odds of anything happening. I understand he is better about answering his phone. On a given match at Williamsport 1000 yds club, the two top gunsmiths in the number of guns they built are Bruce Baer and Mark King. Bruce is apparently in great demand.

I wanted to know the same stuff as you are asking, but it was not worth a long distance phone call to me.

He has one 338 on a chey-tac and one 338 on a 416 Imp case and that is all I know.

Re: 308 Baer

Bruce is a topnotch 1k smith and shooter. He builds some great LR guns. His 308 Baer really shines with 240s in the wind. It is the PA "windy day" go to round.

Bruce is not a computer person and normally does not "answer" his phone while working unless he knows you. However, he normally returns the calls at end of the day.

He also makes one of the absolute best laminated stocks and prices are great. His wife Gerry is in charge of that and can make any pattern or combo of patterns such a front off this on and butt of another.
