Glad somebody else has common sense, apparently the OP doesnt!


After 3 different pairs of mounts I don't think changing them again will help....

with a 5" ring spacing that would amount to a .05" shim...

I agree with Redneck that a crooked barrel to receiver fit is likely.

Something I have seen before(but not as bad as op is saying ) espcially with lite barrels exccessive "up" barrel pressure on the end of the stock can change POI a lot , only way i know to check this is "credit card bed " the action so as the barrel is floated or very lite contact and see how much the POI changes. Don't belive me take a known rifle that is floated and take it out of the stock and rap a bunch of black tape around barrel (to make lots of up pressure) where it hits the end of the stock put back in stock and see how high it shoots.

After 3 sets of rings and bases and 3 different scopes all with the same problem its not the bases or the scope. Pulled the rings off and check the square on the Leupold bases and it was perfect. Pulled the stock and placed a square on the front portion of the action and rotated the rifle. The wobble at the end of the barrel was something to behold. Looking at where the barrel attaches to the action there appears to be a very small space between the action and barrel on the bottom side of the action which explains why it was hitting high. She has been boxed up and sent back to Kimber. Hopefully they will pull the barrel this time and check it. Thanks again for everyone's input
