Just bought a Kimber 8400 in .270 wsm.  I already have a Zeiss Diavari V/MV 3x12x56mm.  I will use the rifle hunting in the southeast where deer move late...so low light performance is important.  The scope is light for a 56mm, less than 18 oz.  Does anyone think the scope is too much for the rifle?  Comments please.

I'm here in Arkansas so I know what you mean about them late moving deerz.  As to the 56mm objective I wouldn't go with it, it's just too big.  I would look at something in the 40-44mm range with a German #4 reticle with a max of 10 power on the magnification.  If you like it the scope's not too big for the rifle, but it would be too big for me.

Kimbers are great feeling rifles.  They mount very naturally, and you're going to lose that with a 56mm scope.  However, that's a great scope, and you've already got it, so I would get some super high rings and mount it.  Shoot it a while and see if you like it and can get used to it.  If not. you have lost anything but $25 for the rings.
