Back in the 80s I was running the AK NG Marksmanship untit. The Army ran out of 45 ammo. (I think they were getting ready for the switch).
To keep my pistol team shooting 45s we bought a lyman 4 cav. 225 grn LRN bullet and cast our own. That bullet worked quite well. We had some good pistol shooters on the team and they were happy with that bullet.
When I left the Guard, my replacement didn't want anything to do with reloading so I ended up with the mold.
It still works great in my guns. I've never seen a need for any other bullets in my 1911s.
