A One Gun Hunter

SCI Member John M. writes in:

“The rifle that I have used for the past six years is a Kimber Classic 84M in .308 Win. caliber.  It is topped with a 2-7X Leupold VX-2 scope with a Duplex reticle.  It is light with a great trigger and it shoots 1 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards where it’s sighted in 2 inches high.

“I cut out my groups from shooting off of the bench, and rarely the three shots will touch.  I know that the rifle will shoot much better groups, but I am not able to do it.  Most of the time, I shoot off of a mat or sitting.  I do not need another centerfire rifle.

“In the past six years, this rifle has killed three moose with 180-grain Federal Nosler Partition bullets, and three deer with Fusion 150-grain bullets.  The rifle has been on horses and I have carried it and it has been dropped.  Unless I purchase a third .22, this rifle may be my last.”
