    My Kimber 84M in 308 Winchester. She wears a 2.5-8x32 Zeiss in Leupold rings and has been Black-T'd. She will put 5 Sierra 150 Pro Hunters pushed by 45.5 grains of Reloader 15 into 3/4 of an inch. The deer of West TN have issued a bounty on her, but she presses on!

    Nice rifle,
    i will be going down to montana this year to hunt elk and whitetail and will either be choosing my Browning A-Bolt 300. wsm shooting 180 grain accubonds at around 2900 FPS holding 3/4 moa out too 300 yards (will be testing further shortly) or my remington model 700 sps varmint 243. win shooting 80 grain soft points at 3250 fps which shoots under half moa out too 500 yards. Both great rifles and great shooters.


    When im back home i will be taking out the ol 30-30 Marlin! cant wait to put that thing to use this year.

    Nice rig. I like the idea of your scope choice. These 50 and 60mm scopes on hunting rifles just seem sooo unnecessary. I sure wouldnt wanna lug one around. Nice rig.

    Glad to see another hunter who knocks them down with a 308.
