My solo just works with golden sabre and critical duty, why don't the other recommended personal defense rounds work like HST, gold dots, hydra shok.

There are two things you can do get some American eagle or Winchester NATO both in 124 gr and shoot the hell out of it or send it back to kimber.i do think if you shoot either one that I recommend you will be fine after 100 or so rounds.
Marshall and Markie like this.

HST is not on the recommended list.

I use Golden Sabre in all my 45's. All my 45's like this ammo and I think you should stick to ammo that your gun likes. Especially for self defense. HST seems like an excellent round but I've never use it. Not knocking it. I use Gold Dot 124gr in my 9mm guns with no issues.

Yesterday I noticed Sportsman's guide has Golden Saber 147gr for $12.99 for a box of 25 with free shipping. I'm going to try this in my 9mm guns. I can practice twice as much at half the price. My 45's like it and I bet my 9mm's will run just fine with this stuff. I believe the HST was around $26 for 20 rounds.

I agree with the above suggestions; shoot it. After a couple hundred rounds I'm able to use 115 grain as well. Even used the Ruger Polymer Rounds and they worked too.
