Re: Custom hunting .30-378

I reall like diversity of the bushnell 6500 but for a scope with that much magnification I think they need to make target/tactical turrets for it.

    That was my 2007 bull from Montana, killed with my 30-378 accumark and 210 Bergers. I live right on Lake of the Ozarksl in fact I have 3 lake front homes for sale here. If they ever sell I will be in Montana. I have spent as much time as I can there for several years. I just want a small place out of town up there somewhere.

    Yeah, I agree with you on the turret issue with the 6500. I think the Elite 4200 6-24x50 has them on it. I was thinking something more along the lines of a 2.5/4-16x42; but we'll see. I suppose now that I have the gun approval from all of the guys on the board, my next decision is a scope. So, I'll get to reading on that.

    Pretty small world eh? Where abouts in Montana are you looking? My sister and I drove through there this past summer, and it was a dang postcard. The views and landscapes on the western side were awesome.

    Leupold would be the best option on the accumark. I had a sako trgs and weatherby accumark in 30-378. If i had to do it again, i would have a recoil pad, mercury reducer installed with the muzzlebrake. i had trouble with a handful of scopes holding zero but leupold worked fine. I found most 180 gr loads were accurate between the 3300 to 3400 fps range with H50 BMG powder.
