    I found the load for my rifle.

    Starline brass, trimmed to 1.570”
    CCI 350 large magnum pistol primers
    30.5 gr of H110
    Hornady 325 gr FTX
    OAL 2.140”
    100 yard group, ladder testing, measured .657”

    I think a sub MOA big bore rifle is acceptable.

    Nice groups, the h110 was the most consistent for me.

    I know you didn't ask me specifically, but I'll offer up my answer anyway

    On my 458s I have a 1-6x vortex strike eagle, a 1-6x Athlon Midas BTR, and a 1-4x burris mtac. My preference is, by far, the Athlon, with the strike eagle in second place.

    Scopes, in my opinion, vary person to person. What I like, you might not. You can get suggestions on what to check out, but I'd recommend getting behind a few to see which you prefer.

    Thanks Aaron, getting some ideas before I spend the money. Looks like Athlon Midas has been discontinued but it gets really good reviews. Found some on amazon though for 259.

    If you prefer the Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x, $280 at Brownells for the scope and a mount using code M8Y sure ain't a bad deal...
