Setup Is Complete

Kimber Mountain Ascent 7mm package is all set up. I went with the Leupold VX-6 6x18x50mm on it to keep it as light as possible and still make a long-range rifle. It was a very nice day here for Montana for March so I broke in the barrel today. She's ready for some custom loads now so I ordered some new Hornady brass well keep you posted on the load I will be using..

I have no experience with Kimber rifles but in all my years of long range rifle shooting the only thing better then a Leupold scope is a Nightforce, JMHO.

Almost put a nightforce Atacr 5-25-56 on it but weight was my concern this one weights 19ozs lighter ...

Nice rifle is that a 7mm-08 or the 7mm Remington mag ? I dont think you can go wrong with Leupold.

My Vortex Razor HD Gen II is 48 oz! But the GAP rifle was already 11.5# so I didn't care. And that Razor is great for money. I have not messed with the 6 series of Leupolds. We used vx3 years ago at work before going to NF.

How's Kimber rifles compare to others? Remington and Winchester?

You sure went all in on that scope. Bout 5 times what I've ever spent on a scope. Nikons are my budget conscious choice. Someday, hopefully a Leopold.
