Range report, Rimfire Super

Apologies if this is a duplicate post; I don't see the one I thought I posted earlier.

First trip with this weapon was 4/3/17, low 50s temp, no wind. 110 rds. Federal Automatch (1200 fps.) Constant FTEs, FTFs; way too many to count. The gun did seem to do better with rapid fire.

Second trip today, mid 60s, no wind, overcast. Liberal slide/frame lube with FP10 immediately b/4 firing.
CCI Velocitor 100 rds. (1435 fps.) FTF rd. 20; Feeding stovepipe rds. 30 & 50. FTRB rds. 79 & 93.

50 rds. Federal (1240 fps.) FTE rds. 1, 2, 11, 13, 21, 41, 42, 43; FTF 22, 23, 24, 30, 31, 32.
Again, seems to perform better with rapid fire. Manual states 200-300 rds of Hi-vel ammo. Guess I'll try another 100 of the Velocitor.

Any and all comments, suggestions, criticisms welcome. TYVM.

Also, note the nick in the bullet in the last round in the mag.

Only 1 mag used, that came with the gun.

Nice report Dave, while I don't have a Kimber .22 pistol I do have both of the Kimber .22 conversion kits and find them to be extremely accurate even on the 3" Ultra frames.

Yeah, they can shoot better than I can.

But you know what? It's all good.
