RE: kimber .......
Are you sure the Classic was an 8400 and not an 84? The 8400's are long actions (like .30-06, .300WM,.338 WM, etc.) and the .308 is a short action. Bet it's an 84. I have one and it's a beauty. Great wood, light weight and shoots very well. I topped it with a Swaro American 3-9 and it's definately a keeper. Good luck with "yours".
If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got.
