Thanking about picking up a kimber eclipse 2 in 10mm. Just a few questions about kimber before I spend $1,300.

How is kimbers customer service?
Is there any problem reloading for a kimber?
Is there a problem with cast bullets or non jacketed?

I've never used Customer Service in five years.

Sorry, I don't reload.

It's never failed to feed or eject with any mixture of mags (Colt or Kimber), or ammo (Remington, Federal, PPU, Hornady CD ) ... Anything I've tried has worked, and is as accurate as I'd expect or better.

Kimber has a reputation for terrible customer service. Just Google Kimber customer service and see what you find.

As for reloading the 10mm, I reload for mine. The problem with cast lead bullets is that you need to keep the velocities very low in order to prevent leading of the barrel. And then what's the point of owning a 10mm if you can't shoot a fireball? I only shoot jacketed bullets in my reloads.

Hopefully I won't need to use there customer service.

You have a point with the cast bullets. That would be like cutting it back to a .40.

Can't you gas-check the cast lead bullet?
