    Good break in ammo for Kimber Ultra CDP II

    I'm looking for some decent break in ammo and wanted some input from you guys. What have you used in the past and what would you use on an Kimber Ultra CDP II? I saw these for a good price. Any experience with them? Blazer Brass Ammo Bulk Pack .45 ACP 230-gr. FMJ 200 Rounds-450719 - Gander Mountain

    Blazer Brass is fine. I prefer to avoid Blazer's aluminum case ammo, so read the description (you linked brass cased). $60/100 is pretty steep for .45 FMJ.

    Try this:
    45ACP Aguila FMJ 230gr ammo, 1000rd case.

    I feel it shoots more consistent MV and cleaner than Blazer.

    PMC or Winchester is what I run through my Ultra CDP2. Definitley get ProMags. The stock ones FTF constantly.

    I broke my Ruger in with 100 Tulammo, 100 Monarch, 100 WWB, and 100 Remington UMC. This was at one range visit. No issues from any of them. For break-in, I wanted $20+/- ammo.

    "Break-in" ammo?

    Most any decent brand will do. You'll need to find out what the gun likes and hopefully NOT find what it doesn't like. Most guns that I own don't seem to have issues with most ammo but as far as my handguns, they've had no issues with CCI-Speer, Blazer, Magtech, Hornady, UMC... even PPU... and I prefer to stay away from steel case although I've had no issues when I did shoot steel cased. To me, break-in means running as many rounds of as many brands as you can and also be sure the gun cycles the brand(s) of HD ammo that you decide upon.

    I use WWB, Federal Am Eagle or other well know range-grade brands in my better firearms. The heavier bullets will move things along a little quicker.

    The cheapest ammo you can find. For what a Kimber cost it better shoot ANYTHING!

    Things gun forums have taught me:
    -Some people shoot guns other "run" them.
    -I don't dislike Glocks but often dislike Glock owners.
    -Open carry is to a handgun as bluetooth is to a cell phone!
    -Simple math can deliver posts per day... some gun forum members need to get out more!!!
