Kind of an impulse buy. I handled one about 10 years ago in 30-06 and remembered being impressed. I've got a BC goat hunt coming up and was planning to take a new Mountain Ascent in 308 and still probably will, but this short action Ti 7-08 popped up on GB and I figured I'd play with both and keep/use my favorite.
From a spec standpoint the Kimber looks like the better rifle, but sometimes that's not the whole story. I'm not sure I want to spend the additional money on the Ti but gather I can shed some further weight swapping the B&C stock for a McM edge and buying a lightweight shroud.
There still seems to be some love for these rifles given the bidding...

Bates,
That's a good endorsement and I'm eager to get my hands on this. My first centerfire rifle was a 7-08 in the 788 Remington. I remember it punched above its weight on our Virginia whitetail and killed them as dead as my later '06.
If i decide however not to keep it I'll let you know.

Probably one of the better "packages" out there. I'd prefer it to my XCRII 7RM.

I bought one last year, and it has spoiled me. I usually carry heavy, suppressed guns for whitetails, but carrying this little thing was a nice change though my ears didn't appreciate it. I haven't done any load development yet; I just bought a box of 120gr Barnes Vor-tx, sighted it in, and went hunting. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of accuracy I can squeeze out of it.
