200 rounds of federal 115g FMJ shot beautifully. Totally different gun after getting it back from kimber.No not normal, in fact really unusual. Probably my only nitpick about the Evo is the feed ramp is really steep, so you need to make sure ammo is compatible. I've only had to test carry ammo, the different lengths and profiles of hollow points require confirmation. Any ball just runs and runs. The ramp is so steep mine will not feed Hornady with the rubber tip, it catches. It is not a big fan of Sig V Crowns either, but Gold Dots that look near identical run fine. Anyway you should test carry ammo in any gun.
