Older 1911s

Feeding is an almost pistol by pistol basis on older govt issue 1911s, some will feed HPs and some wont, mine likes every thing but light loads and wadcutter. Now as for SWC ammo if you are talking about wadcutter then special Light load recoil springs are needed as most SWC is lightly loaded powder wise and would have trouble cycling thru any semi auto not set up for them. It would be Much easier to just get a .22 conversion kit.

My semi-wad cutter loads aren't light loads. I load 5.2g of 231 and my load book indicates I can make major power factor by bumping that up to 5.7g. I also run stock springs in my 1911 so that's another indication the loads aren't light.

Your comment about light loads might be the cause for comments that I remember hearing years ago. Someone had problems shooting these loads and blamed the gun instead of understanding the real problem.

On SWC, because of the bullet’s shape, terminal performance is less than stellar. Im not sure why they would be loaded up to full house spec as their design purpose is simply to make tidy holes in paper plus the problems of lead fouling. Ive taken florida wild hogs with the 230gr FMJ hardball and they just go down like puppets with the strings cut. This is my EDC I built from a Springer frame and series 80 slide. Very reliable, very accurate. It was built fairly close to M45 MEU SOC spec (used SS frame) Just under a grand Invested as I did the work myself.

If the 200 SWC is loaded to the proper velocity for 25 and 50 yard target shooting, it won't lead as long as the alloy's hard enough and a good lube is used. I've shot many thousands of rounds of it.

No disagreement from me

I've been using Oregon Trail Laser Cast bullets for at least 10 years now. My load data claims my reloads should be in the 800fps range and a major power factor can be achieved which will push the lead at just over 900fps. Someday I'll get a chrono and see what I actually get out of these loads, but they have worked well for me.

Never had a spot of trouble with leading either.

I've been looking at those as well.
Is it worth getting the standard version for $450 and then building it in to a better performer or buying the match version at $800?

My thought would be the tactical version, better sights, extended thumb safety, ramped for HPs, lowered and flared ejection port, beavertail safety(even tho its a bit large and swoopy for my taste). You can always change a few things to fit your tastes but you wont have to change much.

With the tac you get a bunch of mods most people end up doing already on it for about $50-$100 more.

Then change as needed.

I don't think it needs add-ons the tacticals are pretty damn good shooters !

it will shoot the 9 ring and center out of a 7 inch target at 25 yards right out of the box

mine was $500 and only thing I did was lose the plastic grips . like mentioned it shoots anything I feed it , I love this gun

Get the Tactical version for $35.00 more than the GI and you will never look back. Here's mine now.

Put 1000rds of cheap ammo through mine and it's been perfect everytime.

Also plenty more accurate than I am.
