Kimber 8400 Article in December's Issue
I just picked up the December issue yesterday and did my first quick read this morning. I think I may have found an error in the above referenced article? If not, then I am totally impressed with the Kimber rifle!
On page 64 when relating group sizes, the size given for the Federal 308M load is .06-inch. Do I read this correctly as 60 thousandths of an inch???? Or should it have been .60-inch or just over 1/2 inch?
Likewise the Black Hills shows .07-inch. Maybe .70 inch or just under 3/4"?
Not to nitpick, just curious as the discrepancy between those two and the two previous loadings listed showing 1+ inch groupings.
Regardless, I just want to add that I thoroughly enjoy SWAT magazine.
My background is civilian, btw. I have no .mil experience and was a lowly Reserve Deputy for a rural Sheriff's department from '78 to '89 so there's not a lot of LEO experience here either.
Keep up the great work!
I noticed that too and thought the same thing ... maybe a misplacement of some decimel points. I forgot to mention it here, though, between the time I read the article and seeing your message. Thanks for reminding us!
The group may have measured an actual 0.378" from outside edge to outside edge.
Center to center group size would be 0.07".
ETA: It could be an error though too.
.6 and .7 (1/2 and 3/4). Sorry any confusion.
Okay ... that's more like it! It's still awesome accuracy for a production rifle (and the shooter!), but it makes sense now.
