    Coming in at under 5 lbs for 308 and jumping up to 5 lbs 5 oz for next step in cals this one had the attention of the mountain hunters at the Kimber booth.

    Also own an Adirondack in 308, big fan of this gun a joy to carry with a Leica ERi 3-12 riding on top of it. For a lightweight gun the recoil is very very manageable and the shot to shot consistency in a hunting scenario has been fabulous. Highly recommended.

    These are great rifles. I have a mountain ascent in 6.5 creedmoor and a Montana in 280ai. Both are extremely accurate and a joy to carry.
    My biggest tip if buying one though is get it bedded before shooting or reloading for it. It will save you a huge headache from inconsistency. I had inconsistent groups with both rifles but once bedded and a load tailored they both shoot lights out.
    It’s a bit of a shame that for the price of these rifles they are not bedded from the factory. Still a great product and my favorite trigger on a factory gun imo
