On the 22nd I will be picking up my shiny new Kimber Ultra Carry II with Meprolight Tritium night sights and Crimson Trace laser grips. My blued steel beauty is on layaway, to be purchased during an upcoming employee pricing event. I should be ashamed of spending so much money but I’m TOTALLY JACKED.
The manual (online) says that I need to shoot 400-500rds of .230grn FMJ round ball ammo to break it in.
Any ammo recommendations?
I’d like to buy bulk, just get 500rds at once and hopefully shave off a few cents per shot. CCI Blazers seem to be in short supply these days, can’t find 'em anywhere! I’ve read mostly good things about Wolf ammo but there’s always one bad review tucked in among the 5-stars…
Anyone have a Kimber? Any experience with steel case .45 ACP? Should I spend the extra cash on brass bulk ammo like Winchester White box or PCM even though I don’t intend to reload?*
Any thoughts on Kimbers, 1911’s, bulk ammo, or breaking in a semi-auto would be greatly appreciated.
Mine will be the first .45 in the house so we’re not set up to reload for the time being. I’m loathe to buy dies and such when I’m the only one, I’d just as soon buy a pallet of whatever works best post-break in.
