Shot approximately 150 rounds through the K6S today. The first 25 ish rounds were 38 Special +P (several manufacturers). The rest were 357 Magnum 125 grain Precision One (1425 fps) and Underwood 125 gr FMJ +P FMJ (1200 fps).
The 357 Magnum rounds were very much on POA. All rounds today were mostly middle of a 12x12 target at 8 yards. I was seated but no arm rest or gun rest. The heat here in Eastern N.C. caused my eyes to water up a lot and the POA was a tad fuzzy.
AND my hand felt none of the pain that was associated with the nekked (southern term...lol) Kimber backstrap.
The grip works for 357 magnum with an approx. 1/2 or3/4 inch cushioning stuffed in the top of the grip. Does not look great, but it has held up so far and seems to work very well.
Another 300-400 ish rounds varying weight 357 ammo will give me well above 500 rounds since Kimber fixed the striker assembly, to prove that the gun MAY not break another striker and 4 other parts that were replaced by Kimber.
I still do not know if I will ever feel comfortable depending on it to be a reliable bug but time will tell....maybe?
Another thing. I have been working on my hand strength (had radiation and chemo earlier this year and that zapped a lot of my strength and stamina, but I am slowly getting back to being a semi-normal 71 yo with eye sight to match). Hopefully some new glasses in a week or so will help some also.
Folks, trying the J frame grip or the one that Ceapea showed above may help your ability to truly have a comfortable 357 magnum snubbie.
