Kimber Solo TARGET ammo
Hi, I'm new here. Have a question:
What is the least expensive ammo anyone has had reliably feed in their Solo? Wife's been shooting 147 gr. Hydra-Shocks. They shoot great & are reliable, but are scare around here now, not to mention expensive.
Any luck with any cheaper JHP's, or better yet FMJ's? And, before you say anything, I know what the manual calls for...
Thanks in advance for any info!
Use anything that's not Russian-made, or that uses steel cases.
Blazer (aluminum cases) should be cheap. There are a few "white box" brands, too.
Lead-bullet loads are cheaper than jacketed-bullet loads.
As a general rule, stay away from reloaded ammunition sold in paper or plastic bags, in bulk.
Also do not use someone else's home-made reloads.
Update: Fed 50 rounds of MagTech 115gr FMJ flawlessly yesterday! Very happy to have found some inexpensive rounds for the range. Only other FMJ she's tried was Federal white box 115gr. That would not cycle.
If anyone else has any luck with any FMJ's in their Solo, let me know.
I use 124gr American Eagle FMJ work real well no feeding problem.
