Kimber Solo TARGET ammo

What is the least expensive ammo anyone has had reliably feed in their Solo? Wife's been shooting 147 gr. Hydra-Shocks. They shoot great & are reliable, but are scare around here now, not to mention expensive.

Any luck with any cheaper JHP's, or better yet FMJ's? And, before you say anything, I know what the manual calls for...


Thanks in advance for any info!

Blazer and Aguilar in 124 gr JHP run just fine through my Solo CDP. Never had a single issue.

Federal American Eagle & Aguila

Federal American Eagle 124gr FMJ works at 100% through my Solo. I had less luck with the Aguila 124gr FMJ, but that was before my Solo went back to Kimber for warranty work. This was my first experience with Aguila, and--when reloading the cases--I noticed an infinitesimally minor, but large-enough-to-matter base diameter on some of the Aguila cases when checking SAAMI cartridge dimensions in an L.E. Wilson Max Cartridge Gage. Drop-testing the same reloads in my Solo barrel passed. YMMV.

Cool Go For It!!

Some of the guys have stated what FMJ loads work in their Solos. The only way to find out what yours likes is give some of it a shot (literally)!! Hope you find something that you Solo CDP likes. You may even luck out and find that it will eat anything you feed it!! If it works out well, this could be a lot of fun and a great shooting experience!!

Have fun. Be safe!! Be sure to give us a range report!!
