SCPHD "range report"

Picked IP my SCPHD on Friday and took it to the range to break it in. Before going, I pit a Wilson Combat flat wire spring setup in and grabbed the ammo. The target lanes were taken, so we shot at hee steels which are silhouettes about 1/3 the size of a B27. We fired 300 rounds of winchester white box ball 230gr, 50 Remington 230gr JHP's, and 25 round of Federal Hydra Shocks in total, cycling them through 5 various magazines (2 Kimber, 2 grades of Chip McCormick, 1 Wilson combat and oneno-name).
No FTE, no FTF, nothing. Ate every configuration we threw at it and kept rocking. While this isn't much of an accuracy report, I will say I've never been able to consistently hit those steels from that far out with my 5" Springfield Loaded. The tables are back 50 yards and we did most of our shooting there. I was very impressed. My buddy (who is a better shot than I) had no problem with the 6" round plates at that distance with the SCPHD either. He too has a Springfield Loaded and said he is seriously considering a 4" Kimber now.

Excellent. The SC HD series is fabulous. Love my Ultra. Passed on a chance to get a Pro HD on Friday for $1,299. Went back today and it was gone. Someone kick me in the butt.

50 yards is impressive, especially with a 4" barrel. I love the white dots of those night sights for daytime shooting.

How comfortable is the grip with the rounded heel?
