    Talking Let's just say

    let's just say I was going to put together a raffle for 3 Kimber Montana rifles in 3 different calibers what would you choose to cover Alaska's game. I was thinking a 243, 3006 and a 338 or something along those lines.

    I would say a .338 or .375 is a must.

    A medium gun such as .300 Win Mag. or 30/06

    A light rifle such as a .223, .22/250 or .243

    All stainless, with sights.

    In the Montana configuration this is what they have for the smaller of the calibers.

    .243 Win.
    .260 Rem.
    7mm-08 Rem.
    .308 Win.

    Among that group, I'd personally go with the 7mm-08. As for the rest, well....I'll take a 300 WinMag and a 375 H&H.

    While I've never fired a 7mm-08, I hear good things about them. I'd have to agree with Brian on the rest, mostly because .300 win mag is my personal faviorate and you can't go wrong with a good .375 H&H.

    I would say 243, 300 ultra-mag. 416 RemMag.

    Do they even chamber that for a 416? If not I would go 375H/H for the big bears.

    Sorry guys, I would like the rifle in 375 as well but it is not available. The only 375H&H they have right now is the new Caprizi that they announced this year and it is high$$$. 338 is the largest cal avbl.

    Default If

    IF I really had my choice a .35 Whelen in stainless and sights would work for me instead of a .375.

    I like the 243, 300 and 338,

    You have the word was in your post. Does that mean your not doing a raffle?

    If not what happened?

    There is a faster way off the mountain, might hurt a little though.

    7mm-08, 30-06 and either a 300 winny or 338 as they are both so close too each other there is no sense in having a raffle for a firearm in each.

    7mm-08, 30-06 and .338 Would take the .22-250 over the 08 if they had it.
