Tikka Lite or Kimber Montana

Hey Guys & Gals

I have been searching a great 308 for hunting whitetails in the hills of Va and narrowed it down to a tikka lite which can be had for ~$615 at the LGS. with a leupold V3 2.5-8 X 40 I was fiquring on adding another $350-400 to it and have a lite weight 300-500yard rig for ~$1k.
Then i went to another LGS and fondled a Kimber Montana , it is definatley a better handling rifle, but with the scope it was ~$600 more than what was intended and i couldnt justify the $ difference for the same dead deer.
But as my luck would have it....I found a very gently used Montana w/the VX3 already mounted for only $250 more than I would have spent on the Tikka rig.
I have been reassured this is not one of those cursed montanas , the rounds cycle and is reported to deliver < MOA w/ hand loads.

I am needing a little third party help in justifying the $250 difference is a good deal.
Can ya help a guy out? should i or shouldnt i ?

thanx n advance

Well i was able to find a laminated T3 w/ scope & bag for $400 less than the montana. Felt like i got a good deal and the $$$ difference from the montana was enough to bring it home.
