I went to my favorite gun shop today to get serious about buying the Kimber Montana and decide between the Zeiss 56mm Divari and the S&B 56mm. I chose the S&B to go on top of the Kimber Montana in a .308. The problem starts here after months of deliberating on what gun,cartrige and scope to get I finally made up my mind.........UNTI the owner,whom i know pulls out a Kimber Montana in a 30.06 and tells me thaqt is the gun i need. I was back at square one. after all of the help and knowledge given to me from you guys I felt lost again. I told him that I felt the 30.06 was too much gun for around here. He simply told me that it was a perfect rifle for here and anywhere especially how much money the combo was going to cost. He said it shoots flat and a 165 grain round would be excellent. i saaid what about the recoil with the gun being 6 lbs. He said it wouldn't be bad at all.
Should I go with this round in hope that I may use it in hunts throughout the country or just get what I primarily hunt here in SC?
