    I can't find that statement in the Kimber manual. The manual is available on-line:

    https://www.kimberamerica.com/media/...Spreads-1-.pdf

    What it says about ammunition:

    Ammunition

    Kimber firearms are designed to function
    effectively with quality factory-manufactured
    ammunition in the caliber for which the firearm is
    chambered. The following is information to help
    avoid potential ammunition related problems.

    [indent[Do not use +P+ ammunition because
    its pressures could exceed maximums
    established by the Sporting Arms and
    Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc.
    of the United States (SAAMI) and result in
    an unsafe condition that may cause serious
    injury or property damage.[/indent]

    1. Kimber recommends the use of high quality
    American factory-made ammunition.

    2. Do not oil cartridges or spray lubricants,
    preservatives or cleaners on cartridges
    or where excess spray may come into
    contact with cartridges. Lubricants and
    other foreign matter on cartridges may
    cause potentially dangerous ammunition
    malfunctions. Use only ammunition of the
    caliber for which a firearm is chambered.

    3. The use of reloaded, hand-loaded,
    remanufactured or other non-standard
    ammunition voids all warranties.
    Kimber specifically disclaims responsibility
    for any injury or damage whatsoever
    occurring in connection with, or as a
    result of, the use in Kimber firearms
    of faulty, reloaded, hand-loaded,
    remanufactured or other non-standard
    ammunition, or of cartridges other
    than those for which the firearm was
    originally chambered.

    4. Use only ammunition of the caliber for
    which a firearm is chambered. Improper
    ammunition and improperly loaded
    ammunition can be extremely dangerous.
    Severe damage to the firearm and serious
    injury to the shooter or to others may
    result. Always use ammunition that
    complies with the industry performance
    standards established by SAAMI.
    Death, serious injury, or damage to the firearm
    may result from any condition causing
    excessive pressure inside the chamber
    or barrel when a round is fired. Excess
    pressure may be caused by obstruction in
    the barrel, propellant powder overloads
    or by the use of incorrect or improperly-
    assembled cartridges. In addition, the use
    of a dirty, corroded or damaged cartridge
    may lead to a burst case and consequent
    damage to the firearm and personal injury
    from the sudden escape of high-pressure
    propellant gas within the firearm’s
    mechanism.
    ...
    And then they repeat this warning:

    Do not use reloaded, hand-loaded,
    remanufactured or other non-standard
    ammunition. Use of any such ammunition
    voids all warranties, and can cause cause
    death, serious injury or property damage.
    Kimber specifically disclaims responsibility
    for any damage or injury whatsoever
    occurring in connection with, or as a result
    of, the use in Kimber firearms of faulty,
    reloaded, hand-loaded, remanufactured
    or other non-standard ammunition, or of
    cartridges other than those for which the
    firearm was originally chambered.
    I didn't find anything about only using round-nose ammunition.

    I donít recall any such HP exclusion either, though itís been awhile since I had any interest in that brand.
