Finally got a K6

After looking and drooling for a while. I just picked up a k6s at a price I couldn’t refuse. Now I am wondering what everyone is using for self defense ammo?

I use Remington Golden Saber, Federal HST and Speer Gold Dot.

Picked up a K6 last night, too. Talked w/ Kimber's customer service today and asked what bullet weight they are sighted in at.

The rep said 125 gr @ 25yds, but he sounded a little unsure. Looking forward to getting to the range.

Congrats! So far Remington Golden Saber 125g has won my choice for self defense. I am a huge fan of Gold Dot and that is in every other pistol I own but Golden Saber performed better for me in the K6S.

I have been shooting 125 gr. 38 special handloads at 30' and I find my gun shoots a bit low at that distance. It would be easy for me to modify my handloads to exact POA/POI but with that gun all I am looking for is center mass.
I will add my gun has factory laser grips and the dot is dead on at 30'.

My 3 inch K6S shoots low with 125 gr plated bullets, but thats at standard 38 SPL pressure. Maybe using MGN loads would get the POI up where it needs to be. I have white dot sights on my revolver, so not much that I can ground off the front blade.
I would like to see different height blades available to "get it right".
I use the 125 gr bullets for range use because I carry with 130 gr HST, and that is as close as I can get with plated. I can't use lead at the indoor range.

Best,
Rick
