I notice the other day when I was unloading my gun I had a round in the camber and was unloading so the first thing I did was take the mag out and when I did that I notice a round had came out with the mag I didn’t know if this was common or what thanks for any info in advance

I'm new to Kimbers but old to guns--that is neither common nor good. Had you been shooting before that happened?

What probably happened was the top round in the magazine was partially advanced (I find that a lot when I drop a mag) and it got knocked out by the feed ramp or the mag well when the mag was removed. Make sure you bang the back of the mag on your palm before loading them into the pistol and do it again if you remove a mag to top it off with one in the chamber.

Could we assume it's a 9mm? If so, seen it heard it lived it.

I have a Micro 9 that has done it only once or twice in 2 years.

Now check this out, when I purchased my first 1911 in 9mm I was cautioned by the sales guy that this is a known issue and I will probably experience it. Guess what gun?

SA ROC.....in 9mm.

So I've heard of it happening in more than just one brand.

I'm aware of it with another brand, too but I can't recall which one it was.

I usually do that but I was dicking with it at like 3 this morning and noticed it I just ran 60 rounds through it Saturday with no problems

Completely normal for a 9mm 1911-my Aegis Pro does it all the time-doesn't matter whether I use the Kimber mags or the Metalform Springfield design mags.
