Savage .308 model 11

Hey guys,
I was wondering if any of you have a Speer manual laying around. I ordered some 125 gr TNT Speers for my .308 and going to use Varget Powder, but dont have a Speer Reload Book.
Also I ordered some Barnes TSX 180Gr for Elk at 250 yds, Any load suggestions, for that bullet or others used that work well consistantly.
Thanks,
Shawn

    My Speer manual #13 gives a starting load of 45.0 grains of Varget with a listed velocity of 2784 and a max charge of 47.0 (a compressed load) with velocity of 2913 for the 125 and 130 grain bullets. Hope this helps.
