    I've had one in 7 WSM for 2-3 yrs. 3 shot 3/4" groups @ 100 yds. are common with a couple accuracy loads I worked up.
    Zero issues re. reliability. Standard '98 Mauser action for all intents and purpose.
    Easy to get a great trigger (pretty fair out of the box).
    My favorite "stiil hunt"/walk and stalk rifle.

    I love my 8400's as close to a totally custom gun as I will probably get

    I have one in 308 and love it. It was a bit finicky in term sof accuracy until I found a load it likes. Turned out to be a cheap date. Of 8 factory loads tested, it preferred Federal Fusion 165 grain. I've had no reliability issues.

    I had one in 300wsm that didn't like to feed. At 24hrcampfire they believe the Earth revolves around a Kimber Montana.

    It is becoming very popular I hear nothing bad! Kimber has a hit with the 27 & 7mm WSM. I hear now they have a tactical 308.
