Thanks all, looking at getting a Colt 1911 Rail Gun, it'll be my carry gun. Remington 230gr Golden Saber fed pretty dern good through my SA Operator before I had to sell it. Just wondering what all defensive loads might be good to test. I'm more of a rifle guy but I admit I am somewhat obsessed with the 1911.
Mello2u While muzzle energy is one measure, do not discount momentum.
Gotcha, so what loads penetrate the most?
