    Kimber 84M in 257 Roberts
    Nosler Custom Trophy Grade Accubond +P 110 gr. 60010
    Leupold VariX-IIc 2x-7x

    3 rounds at 100 yards:

    3" high at 100 yards, but that can be fixed :)


    Not a magic wand and not a Dakota. . .

    But my 84M is:

    Accurate
    Lightweight
    Well balanced
    Great wood
    Great checkering
    Made in America
    A lot less than the MSRP when purchased LNIB on Gunbroker
    Highly recommended (by me)

    I would be very pleased with that.You have the perfect scope for it too.I plan on a 257 Bob in a Montana as soon as I get the funds together.

    Wow! Very nice. And I've heard such bad things about Kimbers. I've handled one in a gun store once. Thought it felt amazing. And they're great looking rifles. Congrats on a good shooter.

    The 84M does have am amazing feel.
    IMHO, feels better than a pre-64 Model 70 Featherweight

    Very nice, they really are good looking (and in your case) good shooting rifles.

    Good shooting Bushmaster.

    I am a Kimber aficionado as well and have 5 of them. My Montana 270 WSM did very well at the range recently.

    If you can post some pictures of your stock. Nice wood rules!

    Sorry it couldn't hit the penny... I'll give you $100 for it, maybe I can get it worked on. :)

    Ummmm, it looks to me like you missed your target by around four inches?;)
