My kimber (custom match target) feeds hollowpoints flawlessly but jams when using hardball, it seems to not matter what brand of ammo or what grain ammo I use if it's hardball it jams. i have been using wilson 8rnd. mags and i can't correct the problem, can anyone help me or is the kimber going to become the dust collecter of the collection

the gun seems to be double feeding as if the longer hard ball is hitting the feed ramp and causing the problum

SGB, it happens maybe every ten to twenty rnds. and with any manufacture hardball and yes the malfunction is as you described

Both are live rounds? Or is the fired case being trapped by the next round feeding from the magazine?

Theoretically, I suppose it is possible that the mag was somehow releasing more than one round at a time once in a while, but...as both Lumpy and SGB know...a "double feed" is usually a failure to eject and the symptom is that the fired case is trying to feed back in along with the next live round from the mag. I also have never seen this IF the pistol in question was being live fired...but I have seen it happen when someone was dicking around with hand-cycling live rounds slowly...were you by chance perhaps doing that or not?

If that would of happened to mine, I would of sent it back to Kimber! That kind of malfunction just doesn't sound real? Puzzled am I.
