From my experience, using a 185 or 200 is like trying to push a nickel through something. You need the weight of a 230 or something similar...to get penetration. I agree with SChunter.


I haven?t had a chance to test it yet due to health reasons but I want to try out the Hornady Critical Duty 220 +p on a deer or small hog.

I've wondered if the 250 grain for the 45lc would feed I've never had any to try but o far my 1911 will eat everything it still function with my cast plinking ammo even after the super conversion

250 gr. WFN have fed with few problems in 3 different 1911s set up for 45 Super. No modifications to the guns except springs and firing pin stop. The last round in a mag will sometimes jam.

I run both the 255gr LEE RFN and a Keith 'copy' of a 255gr SWC in 3 different .45's and a .460 Rowland and have had very few feeding problems. None of the 1911's have been particularly 'doctored' to make 'em feed better. In fact, one is a Ithica WWII MilSurp. Good mags will help a lot.

I've thought about trying some heavyish cast my gun will feed swc with no issues as long as the case mouths don't have lube or lead hanging on them.... Of course I have good mags in a quality gun as well but it's eaten everything I've ever fed it with no complaint as long as it's loaded got enough to cycle fully. Not fun to shoot off a bench with the full power loads though it's got plenty of muzzle flip
