    Kimber has spent a lot of engineering on the cycle timing of their 3" guns. SA makes a good one too, but I like the Schwartz safety firing pin block on the Kimbers. The rosewood grips are good enough untill you put CT's on it. The slightly reduced velocity of the short bbl softens the recoil of the lightweight and makes it very controllable. Good choice. I recommend the heavier Barnes copper bullet, but Cor-Bon DPX should be the optimum for this platform. Enjoy, and don't pay any mind to the MIM ranters. There is nothing else on the market for the $$ that equals the Ultra CDP.

    Congrats on your CDPII. They are fine firearms. I have hogue grips with finger grooves on my Ultra Carry II. I real like those, it makes up for the lack of front checkering. My 3'' Kimber has been nothing but reliable, and a blast to shoot. Glad you are happy with yours.

    I just read some reports on the Cor-Bon DPX and it looks really impressive. I'm very anxious to try several loads out with the water-filled milk bottles, just to see for myself.

    I've been thinking also of getting a chronograph. They're not too expensive and it would be really interesting to test different rounds. And maybe I need to get out all my reloading gear that's been boxed up all these years!
