Re: Kimber Montana...... .300 WM
The Kimber is just a rifle. It can't do anything. Since you don't know me and can't hear my tone, that's supposed to be dry humor. I'm seeing two questions here. First, what's the 300win cabable of. Second, how would we rate the performance potential of the Kimber.
1. I would use the 300 win mag to take any large game (excepting dangerous) out to around 1500 yards. Your skills and abilities are and always will be the most limiting factor. I have personally taken elk to 1200 yards with the 300win.
2. As for the Montana, my knowledge is limited. I have only handled a few and have never had one apart. My understanding is, aside from aesthetics, you are dealing with the equivelant of any factory rifle (upper end factory rifle, if you please). This means a proper bedding job, tuned trigger, and load work should get you to at least a one MOA rifle, perhaps better. You may get lucky and get better, you may not.
So, the Kimber in a 300 win from 700 - 1000 yards? Pretty much capable of killing any game animal you might hunt with it. What you need friend is education.
