Does anybody else reload for the 308Baer? Any and all info would be very helpfull.
The .308 Baer broke the world record at Williamsport twice in the same year, and was listed in the Guiness Book of World Records.
It has broken every agg record at Williamsport in heavygun, and has been quoted as being the 6 ppc of the 1000 yard benchrest game.
That being said, the case of choice is the .340 Wby.
You need to neck it down in a full length .300 Wby size die, then turn the neck if you have a .336 neck. Fireform when doing load development or at the match.
You can use the .300 Wby case, but you will be about .20 shorter than the .340 case.
I've been shooting it for years, and can help with load data if you need any.
