    Got a line on a good deal on an Accumark, fluted stainless with Accubrake in .30-378.

    My boss has one from Thompson Long Range that he has had unbelievable success with hunting. I can order the same scope that is supposed to be a kind of cheater way to reach out to 1K (using ballistic reticle, no adjustments). It is a Leupold VX3 I think, in 4.5X14 with the custom TLR reticle.

    Anyone have any experience or input on either the rifle, scope or caliber?

    Read the tacked threads in this forum for optics advice.

    The .30-378 is generally a lot more overbore than what long-range shooters prefer, but it would be a good platform to launch the 240gr SMK from.
