RE: views on a kimber 308

Kimber builds a lot of quality into their guns...and then they turn around and forget/screw up the DUMBEST things. Their QC is erratic at best.

RE: 6.5-06 or 264-win mag?

What they aren't telling you about the 264mag is that to get this extra bit of velocity you are going to use a LOT more powder per shot AND you need to go with 26" bbl. The .264 pretty much died out...

I've taken mulies without a problem in one shot kills with everything from 125 gr SP up to 205 gr SP. Anything will work so long as you hit them right. Best all around is 150 - 165 gr.
