? about using a .452 jacketed bullet in 45 auto

Fellow reloaders,
Can you safely use .452 jacketed rounds in a 45 Auto?
I know and have used 452 lead before but was wondering what if anything the extra 1/1000 diameter would do to pressures.
Anyone ever use 'em?
Your input is valued.

.452" is fine for .45 ACP.

.452

Without digging for some old reference material from that stack of stuff over in the corner, As I recall the actual spec for the .45ACP bullet is .4515. I have shot lots of bullets that were .452 in both jacketed and lead. Naturally, Anytime you start using a new component back off the load and work your way back up.
