Not a picky eater

So far, my Ultra Carry II has eaten everything I fed it.

American Eagle 230gr.FMJ 125 rounds
Armscor 230gr FMJ 50 rounds
Sig Elite 200gr JHP 14 rounds
Federal Hydra Shok 230gr JHP 14 rounds
I also used a mix of magazines; Kimber stock mag, Kim-Pro, Sig and Wilson Combat.
No issues at all!

Not crazy about the stock rubber grips, so I ordered VZ Operator II. Will submit pics when I install them

Sounds like you're well on your way to getting it broken in, I hope it continues to run trouble free for you.

Good to hear about a new Kimber doing what it's supposed to do!

I've tried Sig mags in my Kimber's & can't get them to seat. Same result with Kimber mags in the Sigs. Springfield mags seem to be interchangeable with the Kimbers, though.

My old Colt magazines work in my Kimber's, the Detonic's.
