Kimber Montana 300wsm has been great for me for last 10 +/- years.  Elk, deer, bear, etc from WA, ID, MT,

Bingo!   
Your every Liberal vote is a direct attack on the Second Amendment and a vote for Socialism.  You WILL suffer the consequences.

Do you have a budget for the rifle?

28 nosler is the new cool kid for speed.

It seems that all of the new high BC bullets are coming in 7mm. If you use these new bullets, ballistically you catch the 300 win mag somewhere around 650 yards with a 7 mag. Under 650 they are both gonna hit hard. Over 650 the new 7mm bullets start to shine.

Sometimes when shopping for a new rifle you have to be a little flexible with your caliber as its not always easy to find the rifle you want, in the caliber you want, when you want it.

I can pick up a brand new wby vanguard synthetic stainless for just over 500 so Id like to stick around that price.
