I was in the market for another 1911. After checking around and what not I purchased a Kimber eclipse target II. I pick the gun up in 72 hours. Just curius if anybody in here owns one or has shot one. If so what ammo did it seem to like? Any ammo it did not like? What were the best groups you could ring out of it????? I have heard nothing but good reports in the accuracy department on Kimbers.I plan on running the gun through my routine break in and then feeding it several types of ammo until I see what it likes, I was just curious if anybody had any thoughts for me???????? Thanks. Matt

I have one of the early Custom Shop Eclipes and its the best 1911 I've ever owned.  I got about 5000 rounds through it no problems.  It didn't like truncated bullets, so I polished the ramp and throat a little, no more problems.  I reload, but have shot Winchester 230 gr and Seller and Belloit 230 gr through it with no problems.  It's my IDPA gun, so I don't shoot slow with it very often, but the accuracy is about 3" groups or better at 50 yds.
