  1. Finally had some time to get my little Ultra running right. I am using the 165gr bullet with 11.2gr Blue Dot. I also got the 180xtp's to run with 10.8gr Blue Dot. I am using Metalform 7rd mags with stiffer springs and life is good. I ended up using the stock dual spring recoil setup. It did not like the stiffer recoil springs. Going to finally get a chrony to see what kind of velocities I'm getting with these loads. As soon as I get time to run it, I'll post results. Later.
  2. Been busy lately, but had a chance to test the Ultra some more. For some strange reason the gun functioned better with the lighter stock spring. I am still using the same load for the testing. Anyway, with the lighter spring I could actually make it through the whole mag (not every time) without any failures. Still not where I would like to be. Going to try mixing/matching the springs for a better combo. Factory Hornady 180xtp's still functioned fine with no issues. Going to still try to get the 11.0gr to run, if not, I guess I'll have to lower my load a bit. Gonna try 10.5gr instead of 11.0gr of BD. After a couple hundred rounds thru this little baby, recoil becomes a factor....OUCH! I'm also going to try these: 155gr xtp's 12.5gr BD WLP 165gr fmj's (delta precision) 11.5gr BD WLP
  3. sql, Thanks for the input. Sounds reasonable to me. Well, got the stiffer springs in. Damn, they are stiff. Pulling the slide back is kinda tuff. If I can get out tomorrow I'll post my results. Really hoping to make this setup work.
  4. Taos, I hadn't thought about getting stiffer mag springs. Thanks for the suggestion. I know I will have to experiment to get it right. If my 180gr load doesn't work I'll try a different loading. I guess I can work up some 155 grainers. Or 200, maybe 220 grainers! At any rate, I'm gonna have fun doing it.
  5. I got my Kimber Ultra Carry barrel back from getting it reamed to 10mm and went out to the desert to test it. Ran fine with several hundred rounds of factory Remington UMC 180 gr and about 100rds of Hornady 180gr xtp's. I then shot some of my reloads, and had some issues. Had a few stovepipes, and even one shot where the case didn't even eject(never seen that one). Brass was ejecting 15 to 20ft. Before going out I replaced the recoil springs with a 21lb spring kit. Guess I'll have to put in the 23lb springs. Gonna put them in tonight, and go out tomorrow or Thursday to see if the heavier springs help. I'm hoping this will solve the problem. My reloads are: 180gr xtp's 11gr Blue Dot new Starline brass WLP primers Does anyone else have this setup? Any suggestions? If I can't carry my full power carry loads, what's the point? right? Thanks.
  6. I too think that Colt is overpriced. For the same price you can get many of the other manufacturer's offerings with many more options not offered with a "basic" Delta. Although I do like the Delta grips.
  7. I carry: 180xtp's 11.0gr Blue Dot WLP Primers Working some 200xtp and 220 FP's with Power Pistol. Still really like the Blue Dot loads. They kick like a mule out of my 4" Kimber.
  8. Nice. Looking forward to pics and range report! I've been contemplating converting my Kimber Ultra to 10mm. :oh yea:
  9. Just read this post. Nice write up Taos. Nice pics too!
  10. Blue Dot and Power Pistol. PP has been getting harder to find locally since the Sportsman's warehouse closed.
  11. TG is correct. I use 11.0gr BD with 180xtp's as my carry load out of my G29. Good load and fun to shoot out of the small glock. Enjoy and be safe!
  12. Another G20SF post. You guys are killing me! I need to work some more OT!
  13. My next glock will ge a G20SF. I like the feel much better than the old frames. Enjoy!
  14. Very nice! I'm going to get a G20SF first. Then I'll set my sights on a G29SF.....maybe. The current "fat" frame of the G29 fits me fine. I also don't really care for a rail on that size frame.
