    Hello

    Have had several 308 Baers over the years.

    1. 105 Grs of H20
    2. 35 Degree.
    3. Norma 340 Weatherby brass works best to fireform to the Baer.
    4. 3025 to 3040 FPS with 220 Gr MKs seems to be the accuracy load velocity with 30" barrels.

    Mr. Cassel, is there anything that you dislike about this case for 1000yd. competition and longrange hunting out of the same rifle?

    P.S. I had that 6.5-06 rechambered by Mr. Romain and it`s pushing the 140 Amax right at 3100 out of a 26" barrel. I appreciate the recommendation on that one.

    thanks, Warren.
