2/9/16 range report

I was home again today so...
Yup, somehow found a little time to visit the Athens Gun Club :-) As I've altered my grip a bit and started using dust off when cleaning I wanted to see how things would go with the stock Kimber spring. I was happy with yesterday's results using the Wolff 12# but wanted to try the new grip with the stock Kimber spring. I'm now shooting with the thumb of my left hand braced against front upper side of the trigger guard. I used to hold it over the tips of my right hand fingers. Seems to provide a little more lateral stability the way I'm doing it now and as my thumb sets across the trigger provides a stop for my trigger finger. Keeps things consistent.
... Went really well :-) 50 rounds of Fiocchi 95gr FMJ "red box" and 50 of Aguila 95gr FMJ, zero problems of any sort :-) The spring looked fine too when I cleaned up. COOL :-)
... target was at about 25'

Sounds like it's dialed in. Among the other things, I think that fiocchi is a winner.

Good shooting. I am happy to hear your report and the fact that the OEM Kimber spring worked so well. I am still experimenting with my stand and grip as well, particularly the angle of my left (non-dominate) hand and 'locking' of my left wrist or something like that.

... yah, mine likes the Fiocchi. The "blue box" is called "Fiocchi pistol shooting dynamics" that's the higher end line. I've seen it in 90gr JHP and 95 FMJ. It's the cleanest and best running ammo I've tried, my gun prefers the FMJ. The "red box" is the lower tier product, I've only seen it in 95gr FMJ, it's done really well and is nearly as clean as far as I can tell. The "EXTREMA" 90gr XTP has run flawlessly even before I sent the Micro back for a "SPA DAY". I have only run about 100 rounds of that though?
... get the "blue box" FMJ if you can, I found some in stock at Brownell's :-)
