Hello from Colorado

Hi All
I purchased a full size Custom Crimson Carry ll about 5 years ago and I'm absolutely in love with it and so is my 14 year old daughter. She told me I could never sell it which I assured her It would be her's when I'm gone to which she replied I think it's mine now but I can keep it for her in my safe. Hard to argue with that. So Wednesday I went to my LGS to order a FN Scar .308 to replace the one I sold to buy a new motocross bike and asked what was new which is always a bad idea. I was handed a new Kimber Eclipse Custom ll 10mm which some how followed me home so I came here to see what the reviews are on them which is something that should be done before purchasing but it was a total impulse buy. So I'm excited to take it out but not before a take down and a full cleaning and oil and lube. I won't be able to take it out until next weekend. Thanks for having me, time to do some reading.

Andrew, welcome to the site from Tennessee! Sorry don't know what 10mm ammo is available. Round nose? Well that's two I don't own, Eclipse and 10mm.
I know we have one member that bought a 10mm not long ago, maybe he can give some advise.

I doubt it will ever serve as a self defense weapon so yes round nose. I didn't buy any ammo when I picked it up. I was to excited and didn't even think about it. I also need to get a few more mags.

Welcome Andrew, I hope we'll be seeing a pic of a target with some big holes really close together next week :-)
The heaviest FMJ you can find would probably be the best break in ammo.
