Re: Winchester 70 Extreme Weather SS or Kimber 8400 Montana
I just paid $750 for a new Win EW 300 WSM and I really don't think the Win EW stock is blocky. It truly is not that bad, I've felt better, but I actually quite like the feel of the B&C stock and to have the action factory skim bedded into an aluminum bedding block is a bonus. I topped it with a Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14 with a Warne base and QD rings.
I took some time today to install a lighter trigger spring to bring the pull down to 2 lbs. I cleaned it and lubed the bolt and the action for a break in session on Monday. I actually like the B&C stock much better than the HS Rem stocks.
The Kimbers feel great and look good, but I've yet to see a factory Kimber shoot as consistently as a factory Win, Rem, Browning, or Savage.
