Cheapo ammo that works in my Solo

FWIW, I've found that my Solo fires the following non-recommended ammo just fine (prices are what I bought it for on ammotogo.com):

Fiocchi 115gr. FMJ Ammo -- $200 per 1,000 rds

Speer Lawman 115gr. TMJ Ammo -- $240 per 1,000 rds

Check out Atlanta Ammo. They have high quality reloads at some of the best prices.

My Solo seems to like Speer Lawman 124Gr. TMJ for target practice.
I have been buying a lot of my ammo from Ammunition Depot.

Iceman, it depends on how much you buy. sometimes they have free shipping on some of the bulk ammo. My last order I bought 11 boxes of different types of ammo the shipping was $12.80.

I have been buying Blazer Brass 124gr by the case from TargetsportsUSA.com for around $225/1000 with free shipping.

The last case I bought was a sale of the same ammo from Palmetto Armory for 9.99/box which was even cheaper with the shipping cost.

[QUOTE=Sooltauq;108604]FWIW, I've found that my Solo fires the following non-recommended ammo

That's a bummer. Could be you're cleaning it too good and oiling it too well before going to the range. Sometimes also if you're shooting with a stiff wrist and proper grip it will case those same symptoms. Loosen your grip and shoot it dirty and dry and see if that doesn't fix the problem. If it still fires and cycles 115 gr properly send it in to Kimber and have it YONKERED. There's nothing they can't fix. Hang in there; we are all pulling for you.
