The Kimber Mountain Ascent .280 Ackley Improved is an accurate, durable, light big game rifle. The light weight is due to a spiral fluted bolt body, a fluted barrel, a fluted and hollowed bolt handle, one-inch medium Talley lightweight bases and rings, and a lightweight trigger guard. Other features include an Optifade open country finish with a shale gray fluted match grade barrel, a removable muzzle brake to reduce recoil, and a thread protector.

Possibly the lightest hunting rifle on the market Kimber’s Mountain Ascent rifle only weighs between 4.8 lbs. and 6.4 lbs depending on the caliber. However don’t let its extreme weight fool you, the Mountain Accent rifle is a medium to large game hunting rifle plain and simple, available in traditional hunting cartridges like the .270 Winchester, magnum cartridges like the .300 Winchester Magnum, modern cartridges like the 6.5 Creedmoor.

Weight reduction in the Mountain Ascent achieved through creative and superior engineering by Kimber. The stock of the Mountain Ascent is made from Kevlar reinforced carbon fiber making it lightweight without compromising durability and strength. Further weight reduction was achieved by fluting the barrel, the bolt, and even the bolt handle. The Kimber Mountain Ascent is a rifle true to its name – if you’re a mountain hunter who needs to pack light but needs a rifle that capable of (and guaranteed for) sub-MOA accuracy, this rifle is almost a necessity.

Unbelievably accurate... for any weight of rifle.1 hole groups at 100 yards...1” groups at 300... my 280AI has killed several deer, 6 elk, and 3 coyotes... my go- to gun for all in family. Holds its zero year after year, I do handload for rifle, can’t say enough good about rifle.
