    I can't find it either, all i can find is. 200gr Hybrid @0.450 and 230gr Hybrid @ 0.495, So maybe spit the difference that would be 0.473

    The 230gr is here.
    Berger 230 TGT

    The 200gr is in Applied Ballistics (Bryan Litz's book)

    Yeah, I found the 230 and thought the 215 might be about .470 Trying to figure out my seating options with a particular reamer.

    Thanks

    Did you measure that or reference it?

    0.419" is what is stated in the Reference Sheet on Berger's web site for the 308 cal. 215 gr. Hybrid bullet for bearing surface length. I imagine that is where he got it from.

    I got it from the Berger spec sheet that is in the bullet data file on my laptop. I got that spec sheet from the Berger website. The same information can be found at the second sticky at the top of this forum.
