    I don't know why not. Mine likes the 210 Bergers and with a good scope you should be fine. But then it depends on what you call "Long Range" ?

    I have two 30-378's and they both shoot 210 Bergers on top of 98 gr of H-1000 very well. Out of a 26" accumark that will be in the 3050 range for velocity. I would have it bedded and floated and the trigger spring changed so you can get below 3#. I have Leupold Dual Dovetail rings on the one pictured, but I would rather have a good rail base with 20 or 40 MOA and a set of Nightforce rings. The scope on this one is a 3.5x15x56 Nightforce NXS. If you set one up like this and it will shoot a sub moa group at 300 with your hand loads, I would think anything out to 1000 yards would be in trouble after you practise and work up your drop charts.

    I have never used one so I really can't say. But I can tell you I love the NF's. Shawn can fix you up you are lucky to be close to him.
