Default +P in 45ACP for Kimber

Will my Kimber Ultra Elite supports +P ammo w/out damage?

Currently using 230 grain Hydra-Shok but thinking of stepping up to +P.

You should be fine, just don't make it a steady diet.

Call Kimber to be sure but I think I just gave you their canned response.

Read this, it explains a lot:

Kimbers are rated to shoot +P, but they do recommend you upgrade your recoil spring.

Call the Customer Service at Kimber and they can tell you what you are running in your specific pistol and what spring they recommend you use. Generally it is an upgrade of one size.
