    Welcome to Long Range Hunting.

    There are a few around here that shoot that round. I'm sure someone will chime in but probably not here as not everybody reads the members intro forum.

    Hello 30-378 and Welcome, I have two 30-378's. They both like Berger 210's over H-1000 and I have shot my custom barreled one out to 1000 yds. Not that it would not go farther that is just as far as I have practised with it.

    Hello 30-378,

    I have had two 30-378's. One Weatherby and currently a Sako M995 with custom barrel. I am working toward the 1K mark. I am out to 700 right now shooting Berger 210's. Welcome aboard.

    Hello, Not a long shot, that is my 2007 Elk and he was taken with my 30-378 Accumark and a 210 Berger at 250 yards.

    I shoot a Weatherby Accumark in 30-378 that I purchased at Mark Thompsons long Range Schools some years back. I have taken a feww different animals from 500 yard elk to a 624 yard Red Stag in NZ. My rifle shoots faily well, but not as accurate as my custom rifles. I still use it on some hunts though. I shoot a 180 grain Accu bond.
