Greetings all,
New Kimber Solo Stainless owner here. Doing lots of reading and research before my first range trip with the Kimber. Noting especially the ammo it seems to like, so I'll start with 50-60 rounds of 124g Federal HYDRO-SHOK JHP, then go from there with some 124g American Eagle. Looking forward to it, and all the helpful info on this forum.

Cool Hey Ya'll!

Welcome to the forum from beautiful downtown Monroe, Georgia!!!

Congrats on the Solo! Send us some pictures and of course a range report after you try it out. If you are gonna punch paper with Hydro-Shoks, I'd hate to see what you'd use on an attacker!!! That's pretty expensive to punch holes with!!! You may want to use FMJ's to check it out and then send a mag full of HP's down range to check for function. Just a suggestion. Your wallet will appreciate it!! Enjoy the Solo and be safe!!

Welcome and congrats on your new Solo. I carry with 147gr. Hydro shock has a little kick....

Welcome from northern Illinois Adam1961 and congratulations on the new Kimber Solo. If you read your owners manual then you know to clean and lube the gun before making that first trip to the range.
