Range Report!

Brought my Kimber Eclipse Custom II 10 mm to the shooting range today. That is a long title for a handgun. Have to come up with a shorter name for it. Maybe fast and furious

Fired 104 rounds of 180 gr. FMJFP from freedom munitions. I had one 8rd. factory Kimber mag. and 5 Joe's mags 9rds. each. The first session of 6 mags I had 1 failure to feed with the Kimber mag. I the next round of 6 mags I had one ftf with one of the Joe's mags. I think that is acceptable for first time out with this gun. The 10 mm has a definite power and recoil factor to it. Very manageable though. I shot from 30 ft.

Bottom line I love this Kimber 10 it is fun and fast. These loads from Freedom are suppose to be 1120 fps. I can do some hand loading and take it up a notch. That will be down the road at some point. https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/att...1&d=1452908226

Nice range report Tom, I'll bet those FTF problems will disappear as you shoot the gun in.

I finally was able to take a decent picture of the Eclipse. Another guy I met at the range today complimented on the grips also. They definitely look better on the Eclipse than they did on my Raptor. I want to get to the outdoor range I go to an have some fun. I still have two AR's I have put together and have not shot. Also my S&W 17-3 I traded from brother I have yet to shoot.

Cool Nice!!

Lookin' good there, Tom!!! Looks like you had a good time on the range with it!! As for a shorter reference for you new Kimber Eclipse Custom II 10mm, how about KEC2-10? Works for me!! How 'bout you?

I have had thoughts of picking up a 10mm upper for my DPMS Panther Arms Oracle AR rifle. For some reason, that just strikes me a good combination. That will go on the list. However, I now spent a bunch of money on grandkids!! In fact, yesterday was my grandson, Max's birthday!! He turned one!! After that comes Remy (Remington) 2 in March, Scarlett 5 in April and finally, Savannah 7 in May. It will be a while for that upper to come!!!

Enjoy the hell out of that Eclipse, Tom. Thanks for the range report and the pictures. You know how to keep us happy with that stuff!!
