    Kimber Mountain Ascent .280ai

    Hey all,

    I'll get some photos sorted tomorrow.

    Its fired 158 rounds. Projectiles Ive been using are 140gr accubonds @3130fps and 150gr ballistic tips @ 3020fps. Both loads shoot 3/4 moa to 1/2 to less if I do my job. It also shots the 162gr amax sub moa, but not overly fast - 2880fps. Still plenty of case space though.

    Slight blemish (scratch) on the side of the stock when it rubbed a rock otherwise in great condition. Bore is bloody nice. Its one of the new Sub Moa guaranteed kimbers

    Its priced to sell but I'm in no rush yet, but $2500 is fair I feel. Itll ge on TM this weekend for $2800. For another $650 the scope can come with it. Leupold vx3i 4.5x14 cds duplex reticle. Has the factory MOA turret on it. I haven't used the cds voucher, so that also comes with it. Original boxes for rifle and scope.

    Comes with:

    Terminator T1 muzzle brake
    50 x twice fired Nosler brass
    Talleys 1" low.

    Its the sweetest rifle I've ever carted around the hills, anyone's elses just feels like a tank! Only reason im selling as im looking at a business venture eary next year so I need to start putting some $ aside for that.

    Also for sale but only if the rifle sells is:

    -Above scope $650
    -Redding dies, F/L and seating $100
    -Brand new box Hornady Amax ELD-X $65
    -Hornady Amax ELD-X x 91 $55

    cheers,
    Grant

    No worries 300.

    To everyone , photos will be done this evening, but I've had a couple of pm requesting them, which I've done via email from my ph which is easy, can't directly upload to here for some reason, so if you want photos quicker - flick through your email.
