montana or kimber
the next rifle i buy will probably laugh be the last one. i have decided that it will be a 257 roberts. the 257 bob will be my deer gun. the furthest shot i will take will be 300-325 yards. but its more like under 100 yards. i'm planning on using a 117gr hornady sst or 100gr barnes ttsx.

i can choose one of the three.

1. build my own using a 98 mauser( or 98 variety). i can build my own(meaning my gunsmith) but i don't "want" to do it.

2. kimber classic ( http://www.kimberamerica.com/classic-select-grade )

3. montana asr ( http://montanarifleco.com/?page_id=149 )

what do you choose? and why?

thanks!!!

My last rifle will also be a 257 Roberts but will either be a Ruger 1 or a Winchester Featherweight.Id go with the Montana Rifle myself.

Well we all know the BoB is a great round for deer size animals. That said if I had to choose one I would go with the Montana. I have had some friends that have had them over the years and they loved them. I would make a vote for the Model 70 in the 257 Roberts. I have one and love it. Let us know what you get.

Another vote for the Montana. It's a little heavier, but overall I think it's a better quality rifle.

The three Kimbers I've been around in the past were 2-2.5" guns after lots of load development. One was a .257 Rob.
