Well after waiting almost 2 months to actually pick up my new "toy" I was able to get her and bring her home! I am the proud papa to a new Kimber 10mm. I have been looking to add to my Kimber collection and my dealer found this one for me since it was going to take 8-12 months on order from Kimber.
Well I picked up about 250 rounds of ammo, 200 grain ball ammo, two extra mags, wiped the lacquer/oil residue off and put a fresh coat and off to the range I went
Now I will be honest in that I have never shot the 10mm before this time, so I didn't fully know what to expect, but I fell in love after the first round. I can already tell I will be reloading this round to save some $$. The Kimber has a clean crisp trigger (as all of my Kimbers do) with minimal barrel rise. I was hitting all over the 8''X11" sheet of paper for the first mag until I figured out where I needed to make some minor adjustments. After that I had no problem grouping 9 rounds in a 3"1/2" circle at 25 yrds, yeah I am sure there are way better shooters than me but I figure this is decent for me.
Anyway out of the 250 rounds I only had one failure to feed around the 150th round, I field stripped it, wiped it down and dabbed a lil oil on everything and away we went again with no more issues. I hope to get another 250 rounds through by the end of the month to complete my break in, but really I can't complain since I have only had the one issue in the first 250 rounds.
So far I am loving this round so much more than the 40 sw. I could not hit the broad side of a barn with the 40 for some reason. It was just me and after 1k rounds I gave up and sold my 40 figuring if I cant shoot it somewhat accurately I didn't want it. Anyway here are a few photos of the new toy at the range.
