I have no idea, but I wonder if it is some kinda oil you started using for your 1911 and the residue burned the case? I was using candle wax for lubrication when was reloading .45 long colt in my Leeloader and I did not clean it off the brass afterwards. Now some of my .45 long colt brass looks kinda like yours because that stuff got into the cylinder and made even the factory brass look burnt.

I used 5.1 grains of unique in my 1911 as well for a while with 230 grains jacketed and lead bullets, but my .45 acp cases do not look like yours.
