So I've not really had any issues with my Kimber other than some "growing pains" when it was fresh out of the box. A little ramp polishing, chamber polishing, barrel polishing and it cycles beautifully.
What I have had some issues with is deciding on a carry round.
I started with Liberty's Civil Defense rounds and quickly reverted to Remington FMJ when I had FTFs with the Liberties.
My dad gave me a box of Hornady Critical Defense and after a little research I decided to give them a try. They cycle great (the ramp/chamber polishing is probably the biggest reason EVERYTHING cycles well in this gun now) and I've read really good things about them.
I've had no complaints about them from day one.... until now.
A little backstory first: I secure my pistol (and long guns fwiw) when I'm home with a cable lock. I have a 6 year old and an 8 year old. Though we've had many talks about gun safety, kids are kids and I will not take chances with their safety. Hence, guns get locked up in my house when they're not under my (or my wife's) direct control / holstered. This causes me to chamber and eject the top round in one of my magazines multiple times per week - may 2 to 3 times or so. Not unlike an off-duty LEO who chooses to unload their weapon at the end of their shift. Here's where my gripe/problem/complaint comes in. I've been carrying Hornady Critical Defense rounds for 2 or so months now. I've probably chambered/ejected the same round 15 or 20 times, TOPS. Last night, after ejecting the round and securing my pistol, I noticed the bullet was set back into the case significantly. I've had rifle rounds do this in the past - mostly hunting rounds that I continually rechamber as I move from site to site - rechambering the same round maybe 5 times a day for 6 days straight. However, in all of those instances I never saw a bullet move back past the ogive. I've seen them shorten, but never past the ogive. The Hornady Critical Defense round I ejected last night is pushed back well past the ogive, to the point that I would consider this round unsafe to fire.
I guess my questions are:
Has anyone else experienced this with this weapon or this ammo?
Should I be as concerned about it as I am? (I've removed it from my mag rotation and will not rechamber it)
Is this something I should reach out to Hornady about?
