Over Seated 45ACP +P???

i have a aguila IQ 117gr +p round that i droped while it was sticking out of a mag and it seem to have over seated about 1mm. Will it hurt to fire an over seated aguila 117gr 45 +p? Its not really noticable until u place it next to another round, but i was thinking it could cause problems in pressure's being that it is an high pressure load to begin with.

Pushing a bullet back into the case does raise pressures and is responsible for some Kabooms. If you push back a bullet in a .40 by .10 " you will double the pressure from 35,000 to 70,000psi. A 45 is a bit better especially a steel frame gun, since the operating pressures are lower.

throw it in the trash and don't buy any more of that ammo. The aguila ammo is very much hated on the 1911 forum and the general consensus is that it's very poor quality and low performing.
