Picked up some 200gr RN FMJ from West Coast only to find that none of the manuals list loads. I typically use 231, tite-group or universal clays. Also, should OAL stay the same as with a 230gr RN? Any thoughts or suggestions?

My 1911Colt Govt really likes 200grRN plated Rainiers over 4.0 gr Bullseye. My OAL is 1.250, thats real close to max and still able to fit in my magazines.Thats my target load, I tried SWC & TC only to find they do not feed realibely.
