84M Hunter Question(s)
I have a Kimber 84M Hunter (Black) in 6.5 Creedmoor on layaway.
It was won in a gun raffle and sold to a local dealer for some Christmas cash by the winner. Hence, I purchased it as a used rifle - albeit is really brand new - it has never been fired.
Haven't seen a factory target for it so was wondering if anyone with an 84M family rifle would kindly answer a couple of questions:
What have you found to be the best round for your 6.5?
I have the following Hornady factory loads on hand (traded in another brand of rifle in 6.5 for this one):
140gr Match ELD-M,
143gr Precision Hunter ELD-X, and
129gr American Whitetail InterLocks
I shoot factory loads and don't plan on hand loading any cartridges.
If I contacted Kimber CS and provided the S/N (after taking possession of it) do you think they could tell me what load was used to test-fire the rifle and perhaps provide me with a copy of the target?
I purchased some Talley mounts from a forum member and will most likely be topping the rifle with either a Sig Sauer 4-12x40 or Vortex Viper 3.5-10x50 scope. Comments???
Thanks for all responses in advance...
