I would get the Zeiss Conquest 4.5x14x50 with the RapidZ 800 reticle
 
With the 30-378 you should be able to get enough velocity to get close to setting your scope power on 13 or 14 to make the reticle match your trajectory if you choose a high BC bullet.
 
I have both the 6.5x20x50
 
and the 4.5x14x44
 
scopes and prefer the 4.5x14 because of the wider FOV for hunting and not having to worry about whether the turrets have moved or not.
 
You can go to the Zeiss website
 
 
and find their RapidZ calculator and fit your bullet in and see how it works

I have the 4.5-14x44 on a .300wby, and load ammo down to run the scope on 12x a 30-378 should be able to run wide open at 14x with a high b.c. bullet.
