Load data on 308 Baer?

The bullet selection is:

1) 210 JLK
2) 190 JLK
3) 220 SIERRA MK
4) 216 CAUTERRUCIO

What load should be used to fireform and target shoot to 1000yds. and beyond?
thanks, Warren Barrett.

Re: Load data on 308 Baer?

I made a typing error on the post above. The 216gr. bullets are Clinch Rivers, not Cauterrucios.
Also 200gr.Sierra`s are another bullet choice.

Re: Load data on 308 Baer?

Hello

I have had three 308 Baers and with the bullets you mentioned 75 to 77.5 grs of RL22 and from 78 to 81 grs of RL25.

For another overlooked load for the 308 Baer and match shooting at 1000 yds, I like the 200 and 220 Gr Sierra MK with 75.5 grs of H4831.

I shoot the GTB 215 gr bullets with RL-25.With this weight bullet,as well as the ones you listed,I've found that 81 grains is about max in my gun,(starting at about 78 gr)with a 30"1-10" bbl.With this configuration,I get 3100 fps.For fireforming,I just used 200 gr bullets with a 300 win. load.
