I guess I got lucky and didn't get a lemon. Wanted a carry size 45acp and settled on the Kimber 3" ultra. This past weekend was able to test it over 3 days shooting. I like to use a 200 grain bullet with 4.1 Red Dot. You can shoot all day and find your brass next to you. The Kimber Ultra was flawless and surprisingly accurate. I kept waiting on it to have all the problems people warned me about, so I feel lucky on this one. The real test came when Dad and I opened his cabinet and picked out 5 cartridges each of some of his loads. We chose 7, avoiding a few of the hard kicking loads. Bullets ranged from 185 to 270 grains. There was AA#5, Power Pistol, Unique, and 231 that I can remember. All 7 loads were charted for accuracy. The biggest concern was feeding since all of these loads varied a great deal in cartridge length. Not one hiccup! Very pleased. The best performer was 5 in 1.25" @ 16 yards. It was a 200 grain SWC using 5.2 grains 231.
