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

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.
