Take it to a retailer who sells the braid you want. Many work off large capacity spools but even if yours does not, they will work it out for you. 
I do this ll the time when I'm low on line. Lines are 150 and 300 yards. It only takes them a few minutes to pull it off and tell me what's on the spool, then it's decision time.

On a 125 you won't need a whole lot of backing, or maybe line because you are probably not targeting moby.

KEEERIST, it's not that complicated, maybe 10 wraps of 15 lb mono and then fill er up.

This is how I have my vr125 spooled with 30# powerpro. It's true there are only enough mono wraps to cover the spool base, then a 300 yd spool of power pro 30 will fill it to capacity.

I just picked up a vr125. It states it will hold 400yrds of 20lb braid ,but I would like to load it with 30lb. Do you think it will hold 300yrds or so of the 30lb?

I have a 125... I use 1 wrap of electric tape instead of mono backing. the spool will hold almost exactly 300 yds  (depending on type)..
