Great range day

Made it to the new to me range this morning. I really like the place as itís run by the owner and his wife whom are very personable and laid back. No more giant commercial places for me.
Ran 50 rounds of FM 230 FMJ, 20 rounds of Winchester 185 grain silver tip JHP and 50 rounds of FM 230 grain XTP. All between several different magazines including my two new Chip Mckormick 10 rounders, thanks for the tip Chuck. Thankful for my new loader. While the gun never threw the ejected brass in the same place, even hitting me on the top of my head a few times , the ultra ran flawlessly. Iíll take it. Some may remember that I had to send this gun back to Kimber after it continually jammed during the first two hundred rounds and now at 520 rounds it feeds everything, itís perfect. Couldnít be happier. And with my new VZ slim grips and Nik Taylor sticky front strap tape Iíve got a much better grasp on it, although my aim needs work.
Target is at 12 yards shooting more for speed and function over placement.looks like the target posted twice.

Nice shooting have not tried any ten round mags in my Ultra but I enjoy shooting it! Along with my other Kimbers. My Ultra is also my prefered house gun because of size night sights and I am more comfortable with it.
