Any body ever launch a 147 gr projectile from their Kimber micro 9?

Not a Micro but I put about a box and a half through my Evo on it's first range day. Shot just fine.

I don't have a Micro 9, I bought a Sig P938 before Kimber ever thought about making the Micro 9. The guns are identical, I've put over 700 rounds of nothing but 147 gr. ammo through it and have yet to have a problem. I shoot nothing but 147 gr. ammo in all my 9mm's, I like heavy bullets.
