Kimber Model 84M Montana .338 Federal

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We liked this rifle. The concept of a hard-hitting caliber in a light rifle makes sense for most hunting applications. Accuracy was entirely adequate, and recoil was insignificant thanks to the excellent stock design and excellent recoil pad.

The Kimber Montana's action was like a shrunk-down Winchester pre-64 Model 70, complete with cone-shaped breech, controlled-feed extraction, and a superb trigger, even better than the Sako's. That stock is Kevlar/carbon fiber, and glass bedded.
The Kimber's bolt is a fraction of the size of the Ruger's, which is how Kimber cut the weight so drastically. The Kimber's action is more than big enough to withstand the forces of the .338 Federal, making this rifle one of the lightest and most powerful on the market today.
