I've been shooting them for years in 1911's (and others). No problems here.

Some guns I have had performed better then others, but that's to be expected.
No two firearms are "just" alike.

Some guns need to be throated and polished, but not all.

If you reload with SWC you have to get the COL correct or you will get FTF. I had to experiment with the dies and once adjusted no more problems! With RN lead you shouldnt have any trouble!

I handload for the .45 ACP using the Magnus 200 grain L-SWC's; and
my weapons (SIG P220A and a G.I. model Springer) like 1.230 as a
C.O.L.

Best Wishes,

Cast bullets are extremely popular in 1911's!
