Re: Thoughts on Kimber Montana in 300 WSM
I have a Sako M85 Finnlight 300 WSM and I think it's a great cartridge that performs very close to the 300 WM and kicks about the same as a 7mm RM. My rifle isn't shooting well, about 2 - 4 MOA and I'm not sure if it's the rifle or the Optilock rings. It's being evaluated at the factory. I have shot 3 antelope and 1 cow elk with it this fall and the cartridge did very well. If you're going with a 300 WSM, it would be a good idea to load your own ammo because the factory suff is spendy. I can drive handload 180 gr E-tips @ about 3020 fps and the factory 180 gr Accubonds @ about 3000 fps.
As for the Kinber Montana... I've heard mixed reviews on them and I'll let the owners offer their opinion. If you check the "similar threads" at the bottom of the page, you'll find some more info.
