Paid $400 for mine--not ported (only one I'v ever seen ported is the 1895 Guide Gun), and no scope, but that was two years ago. You'll like the 308MX--it's a great caliber and a fine rifle. Mine is also a 2008 production.
As I understand it, the 160 gr FTX's for the 30-30 have a slightly different shape than the ones designed for the 308MX. The crimping groove is also in a different location, and they are more lightly constructed to expand at the lower velocities of the 30-30 round. As far as any other bullet, I really couldn't say for sure.
