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.

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.

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.

Thanks, guys. That is just what I needed to get started. Thanks, Warren.

I hope each and everyone of you had a great Thanksgiving Day.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
