First Look: Kimber Open Range Pro Carbon Hunting Rifle

Kimber’s new bolt gun is an accurate, long-range and lightweight mountain rifle

Kimber has long been known for its lightweight mountain rifles, and this particular model comes equipped with an improved carbon-fiber wrapped barrel. The Open Range Pro Carbon is a dual-purpose bolt gun that can be shot at longer ranges, but is also accurate in situations where you might do some continuous shooting. It weighs about six pounds and has a wider fore-end that you can mount a bi-pod on. For now, the Pro Carbon is offered in .308 and 6.5 Creedmoor, but I suspect it will come in a wider variety of calibers in the years to follow. The barrel is also threaded for a suppressor.
