Default Tale of Two Tens

Took my new Colt Delta Elite(first colt) and my Kimber Eclipse to the range today to see how they compare.Both are very nice shooting pieces,and accurate.I was trying my best to be objective,slow squeeze,best hold,four different rounds.The Kimber shot tighter groups,maybe because of the full length guide rod,feels heavier.Colt was more comfortable to shoot,less felt recoil,maybe the arched mainspring,wrapaouround pachmyer style grips,double recoil springs,I don't know,just more comfortale.There were no failures from either gun,shot 155,170,180,and 200 grn.fmj and hollow points.Neither can shoot with my 6inch Fusion,but both are excellent pieces,and I'm very pleased with the new Delta,and it is surly a worthy addition to my collection.
