Thumbs up Stainless Target II 38 Super Range Report

This is my first Kimber and my first 38 Super. I did everything the manual suggested in terms of cleaning and lubricating and had a very successful first outing at the range. I shot both Armscor 125 grn fmj and Fiocchi 129 grn fmj ammo through Kimber, Wilson and Mec-Gar mags with no issues whatsoever. I could tell no real difference between the two brands of ammo or three brands of mag. The 38 Super has a nice authoritative "crack" sound reminiscent of my old 357 mags. Was very happy with the accuracy after cranking the sight a couple clicks to the left.

I am very happy with this pistol!

Nice range report. I don't own a .38super, heck never fired one but it sounds like fun and I do love my .357mag. revolver.

Congratulations, I've never shot a 38 Super either. It's always nice when your first outing is successful.

Sounds like a great outing. I have a few 38 Supers and actually find the round quite nice. More power than a 9mm and flat trajectory. The FBI loved this round back in the 20/30's and now seems to be more a IPSC/IDPA round.
