Kimber Solo and 158 grain

I might have come into some 158 grain FMJ if I care to grab it. Anyone use this weight in the Solo? 147-158 seems close enough.

I know Kimber says 124 or 147 but any harm in a tad heavier round?

Send me a Solo and I'll be happy to try it out for you.

I'm not a Solo owner but I don't see why you couldn't shoot 158 gr. ammo in one.

9mm 158gr muzzle velocity for what I assume is FMJ not +P or greater, is dropping below 1000 ft/sec. My gut tells me it should work ok, but the Solo is a close tolerance, finicky little creature. Suggest, if it is an option, that you buy a box and try it out before investing in multiple boxes.
