    Just bought a 308 baer. Can't find any reloading data. Using the rifle for hunting out to 1000 Yards. Plan to use the berger 190 VLD. Any information would be appreciated.

    Reloaders Nest has some data. I use to shoot 85grs of R-22 with 150gr ballistic tips for rock chuck and in my present .30-8mm Mag I shoot 76grs of R-22 with a 210gr VLD. My .30-8mm is almost the same as a .308 Baer. I can't remember the 190gr load but I think it was 79grs of R-22. H-1000 is usually R-22 + 3-4grs.

    Contact Joel Russo. He is a good friend of Bruce Baer. He also has a 308 Baer. He can give you the most accurate info. Dan
