I have a Weatherby Accumark in 338/378, with a 3.5X15X50 Night Force scope. So far my longest shot has been a Moose at 787 yards. Ranged and dialed in.
I shoot a 30-06 also and have shot it for years. I have it set for 300 yards, and it works well without having to dial the scope out to 350 yards.
I guess it all depends on your hunting distances......
I zero all my LR rigs (338 RUM, 30/378, 338/378, 338 Lapua, 338 Lapua improved, 30/338 Lapua, 30/338 Lapua Imp, 6/284, 6.5/284, 22/6mm, 30-06 Ackly Imp, 30 STW) at 400 yards. It works superbly and it allows me to use the NF reticle vice turning knobs all the way out to 1000 yards. I would not even consider a different zero unless my shooting distances and conditions change.
