Range report Eclipse 10mm

This the second time out with my Eclipse 10mm. I fired approximately 107 rds. I was using 180 gr. fmj-fp rated at 1120 fps from Freedom Munitions and also 180 gr. fmj-fp rated at 1150 fps from Armscor. My 10 performed great with 1 FTF when I was doing a little rapid fire.I could have relaxed my grip I do not know. It happened while I was using the factory Mag from kimber. My other five mags are from Joe's. All in all really happy with the Eclipse. My shooting so-so. I will add the top right of the target was with my right hand. I had never shot right handed until yesterday. The target showing my gun is upside down.https://www.kimbertalk.com/forums/att...&d=14545655829

Good job Tom. How does the 10mm compare to the 45 as far recoil and accuracy. I never shot a 10mm.

Nice shooting Tom, it sounds like that 10mm is quickly becoming your favorite.

The recoil is a little stronger than a .45 but very manageble. I orderd a flat wire spring kit for it. Should receive it in a bout five days. It may make a difference in felt recoil.

It is hard to choose a favorite when Kimbers are involved. I do love the the extra pop the 10 mm has. It is more accurate than I am presently. I will be working more on my accuracy. Want to be able to hold the gun steadier and concentrate on finger placement on the trigger. I think some dry fire exercise will help maybe.

Nice shooting Tom ! What a machine that is. Is that gong to be strictly a target gun ? Or would you ever carry it?
