My first post here, but I've been lurking through past posts gathering a lot of good information from other's questioning. I have recently been getting into the shooting scene, buying my first gun this month (Kimber 1911 Pro CDP II) and am now looking towards a hunting rifle for deer, elk, and possibly small bear. I have read praises for both the Kimber Montana and the Remington 700 CDL Stainless, both in .30-06. I like the synthetic stock of the Montana, but the CDL also a bargin in my opinion. These appear to be fairly competetively matched bolt actions. I am just looking to purchase the right rifle the first time. A decent amount of coin will go towards a Leupold scope as well. Anyone want to throw their 2 cents in?
