Georgia Arms 185 gr

Just wondering if anyone is familiar with shooting 185 gr from Georgia Arms or any 185 gr out their Kimber. I want to know if it would cause any problems.

Love their 230 gr .45, but haven't shot the 185 gr.

I've tried 185 gr rounds through a couple of my Kimbers, they worked OK. Nothing that really impressed me, I'll stick with 230's I just like to shoot heavier bullets.

Georgia Arms makes good ammo but, stick with 230 grain. IMO

I have shot about 150 rounds of the 185gr Georgia Arms ammo. No problems at all with it in my Ultra or my Detonics.

I shot some 185 hollow points yesterday. They get the job done.

I was at Georgia Arms this morning, picked up two 100rd bags of 9mm Luger for $26.50 each. Sign on there front door said "No .22lr ammo. Did not know when they would have any and don't ask!"

Appeared to have anything else you could want.

You should have stopped at Governor's Gun Club on the way. We were there from 10:30 till a little after noon.
