There are far too many factors to allow giving a definitive answer. It depends on the shape of the bullet, how tightly the ammo maker crimped the rounds, how cleanly the particular firearm feeds the round into the chamber, and possibly others. I carry 1911s. Bullet setback is a known issue with 1911s in general, so I try to rechamber the same round as infrequently as possible. Toward that intent, when I unload my carry pistol I usually rotate the round that comes out of the chamber down toward the bottom of the magazine when I load up again.
