Thanks for all the replies everyone.

Each five round group was shot in about five seconds or less. That's usually how I shoot when going to an indoor range.

When going to my fathers place,...

I bought a Kimber a few years ago, and couldn't believe how filthy it was when I field stripped it. And yes, it was a new gun.

I was pretty p.o.'d and called them to ask how a new gun left the...

And reloading for it allows me to tailor loads to my liking,...

I too generally clean a new to me gun before shooting it for the first time.

I say generally, because I always carefully inspect a new to me gun before taking it to the range. Sometimes they are...

This would be correct. The pistol was cleaned and oiled properly this time, with about 50 rounds fired before testing the primers.

I made ten rounds identical to the "problem" rounds and ten...

Thanks RR, I still don't know why my reloads turned my gun into a single shot 45acp, but can only guess that it was due to my "torture testing".

I will say that all my reloads have fired on the...

Thanks for the replies. Thought I had done something wrong with the loads.
