Very nice!! Those are great looking rifles; I always wondered if they shot well. What kind of wood is on that stock?

That's a nice group and rekindles my urge to buy a Kimber. Nice shooting.

BM,

I haven't scoped my 257 Bob yet...Glad I got to see first hand there what she ought to do in the acc dept.

Kimber(s) are much better rifles now than in the beginning.

Su Amigo,
Dave

What's wrong with 3" high at 100? You gonna use it at a thousand?

I love the 257 Roberts, but the Ruger 77 I bought chambered for it has the temperament of a menopausal ex-wife with crabs..........

That is a great caliber and bullet combination. Here's what my daughter with her Roberts and 110 grain Accubond drug out of the woods this past December.

Yep she's a pretty steady hand. She loves that 257 Roberts and has total confidence in it.

Last summer we went to Africa.......she took her big gun the 300 WSM over there. Here's a link to the results:

It's wonderful to have such a great hunting partner.

I don't hunt, but I am glad that you and your daughter were so lucky to be able to be together doing what you like to do.
