Re: 338-378 Accumark Opinion
The best over the counter long range rifle in that price range. The trigger can be adjusted to two pounds crisp which for cold weather hunting is close enough.
As far as scopes, mounts, rails and such just depends on how you want to set it up and how far you want to shoot. This rifle will easily get you to 1000+ yard kills on about anything with a standard mounting system and proper handloads. Just plug in the bullet, velocity and range you want to shoot and see if your scope has the adjustment for it. I have 338-378's set up with 225 accubonds at 3450 fps that easily get me over 1000 yards with mil dots out of a 28" barrel. I get 3064 fps out of the 300 SMK with another 338-378 set up for extreme range shooting at a mile or so.
If the price is right you will have an excellent rifle.
Well let me back up a little bit. At the price I can get used ones that are as new which is $1100-$1300 they are one of the best buys. I have no idea what they sell for new.
Predictions are difficult, especially when they involve the future
