Reed camshaft identification help

I recently picked up some 781 bbc heads and they came with a Reed solid lifter cam. Reed cams is no longer in business and I can't find any info on this cam. Looks to be 300/308 advertised duration on a 108 lobe center. I'd really like to know the duration at .050".

The part number on the cam shows as follows:
T300-308 UL-8A1 J4528

Anybody have an old Reed catalog?

That's gonna be a tough one to figure out. I didn't see any of the UL grinds with that much duration. The -8a1 means it's ground on a 108 LC with 1 degree of advance ground in it.

Ya gotta love the internet. Using **** I was able to go back to 2003 and pull up the old Reed Cams website. Looking at it here are the numbers:

With a 1.7 rocker: Intake .612 lift 268 degrees at .050
Exhaust .621 lift 274 degrees at .050

I couldn't find a lash setting

R314ULX is the exhaust lobe

Ground on a 109 lobe center with 2 degrees of advance
