The 8400 Standard is chambered in .25-06 Rem., .270 Win., .30-06, .300 Win. Mag. and .338 Win. Mag. (Magnum model) in a walnut-and-blued Classic, high-grade Super America and stainless-and-synthetic Montana. If that's not enough to trip your trigger, remember the ejection port is just about long enough to handle the 3.6-inch-long .375 H&H Magnum and other dangerous-game cartridges. If you're thinking "Kimber African" or "Kimber Alaskan" you're not alone: At this year's SHOT Show I learned they're on the drawing board.
