Kimber .308 Montana 84M

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The light gray composite stock of the feathery Kimber 84M had no checkering, nor did it need it. The recoil pad, a full inch thick, worked well. We liked the longer pull length, and loved the fine trigger pull that made offhand shooting far easier than with the Ruger. This rifle had perfect balance and stunning accuracy.

Functional beauty with nothing you don't need. That spells a hunting rifle in a serious caliber that weighs 6.5 pounds as seen, or less with a more suitable scope. We liked the stout scope bases. They required Leupold or other dovetail mounts, which we got from Brownells. The box magazine had no floorplate.
Check out the magnificent miniature, yet full-featured, action. Kimber has distilled the Model 70 action into a rare, small, yet fully functional unit that, with the exceptional barrel, was the heart of this rifle. Features: Coned breech, controlled feed, and a fraction of the normal action weight for a .308.
It's easy to see how Kimber managed to cut so much weight from the 84M Montana. The bolt is much smaller and lighter than the Ruger bolt.
