Wow, great response Seven. Lots of good info there. Nothing to add.
Jim Watson- I agree with everything you said, except the part about the OAL. That part I have a question about. I run 1.265" 200gr SWC through my SR1911 regularly with great success. Actually, 1.267-1.268". What problems do you typically see with this length SWC cartridge, and which firearms are more likely to see this problem?
