A: Thanks for reaching out Howard! We have not gel tested this ammo ourselves, but a fella on the 1911 Forum already did a great job of it. He showed that this round's 147gr JHP expands to a diameter of 0.57". Here's the link if you'd like to take a look for yourself:

A: Thanks for reaching out Juan! The Hi-Shok bullet is just the brand name Federal gave to one of their jacketed hollow point bullets. It is essentially the same as their Hydra-Shok bullet but with one exception: It doesn't have a center post inside of its nose cavity. But it's still extremely effective for self-defense, even if it's not Federal's most high-tech JHP bullet on the market. In other words, the Hi-Shok is one of Federal's older JHP bullet designs.

A: Yes sir, I can imagine zero compatibility issues between your 43X and 9mm Hi-Shok ammo!

A: Hi Jeremy. Federal did not test these rounds out of a longer 7" barrel. They got 1000fps out of the standard 4.5" barrel, so it is difficult to tell what the fps will be on a 2.5" longer barrel. I suspect they will be right on the line, one way or another. Sorry I cannot give a definite answer my friend.

A: While this is a 9mm round made by a top tier manufacturer, we can not promise performance in any particular firearm and of course micro and compact pistols can be fussy eaters! I can tell you that this should work in your pistol, but the customer support team at Kimber should have a list of known working and known not working rounds for their firearms.
