Re: Kimber Montana
I have had a Kimber Montana in 300 WSM for about 5 years now. It has a 4.5-14 Leupy scope on it and shoots pretty well. I've used it to take a few deer since I've had it and really like how light it is to pack up and down the mountain. The rifle shoulders and handles really well and because I've used it on a nice mule deer and a really nice blacktail, I'll probably never get rid of it. That being said, if I had to do it again, I probably would have bought something different. The Kimber rifles that I have had and been around are all good rifles, but are not exceptional rifles for that price. If it's just going to be a packing rifle without major mods and shots limited to 600 yards, I would go with a Tikka. The Tikkas my buddies have and my wife's 270 all shoot lights out, have clip fed mags, come with scope rings, and are half the price! Tikkas aren't flashy, they just get it done. Best of luck if you haven't already made your decision.
Sorry for the late response, but this is one of the least traveled parts of the forum.
