[QUOTE]I spoke to some guy who "knows a good amount" and say that because the Gold Cup is a match gun it's supposed to only feed FMJ's.
My understanding is that Colt Gold Cups were set up to run 185 grain semi-wadcutter target ammunition. At least, that's pretty much all that I've shot through my Gold Cup while competing in Bullseye matches for the past several decades without incident. Of course, most 1911 pistols should digest most FMJ (hardball) ammunition flawlessly.
