Does anyone have a montana in 280 ack imp? I'm thinking of selling a rifle I don't use anymore and getting the montana.

Have you had any problems with the gun or any reloading problems like their chamber not matching your dies or anything else?

How does it feed?

Kodiakisland,

Kimber has not built any 280 ackley improved rifles yet due to the fact that proof ammo is not available yet.

Headache

That sucks. Wish they wouldn't catalog it if they're not making it.
Or just make it in 280, that's what I really want.

Cut them some slack.

They publish the new catalog at the beginning of the year. Makes sense right?

You probably should be blaming Nosler.

Wasn't really blaming anyone. I think Kimber would be glad I wanted one. It would suck for them if they made (or cataloged) something no one wanted.

Probably have to settle for one in 30-06. I guess things could be worse.

I've been waiting for a .223 for 2months. Dealer said it will be at least 3months according to what the distributors are telling her.

Take another look at the rifle and its specifications. The long action 8400 chambered in the standard 30-06 length rounds are built on magnum actions. The rifles are an inch longer than the 8400's chambered for the WSM's and a half pound heavier!

Consider an 8400 Montana in 300 WSM as its only 6.3 lbs.

I am a fan of the Kimber rifles and have them in the 84M and 8400 WSM.

Good advice.

I've had two of the LA 8400 Montanas. They are nice rifles, but don't take full advantage of the Montana's concept.

Loc: MN. - Where loons abound.
Yes that is a good idea. Another one is to consider a Montana in 270WSM. I have loaded a 160gr. Partition with 60gr. H4831SC and get 2825 fps with wonderful accuracy. Plus the WSM Montana package is a more efficient use of kevlar and steel!
