Since nobody is posting in the reloading area, I thought I'd give it a little bump. I shoot my 1911's for fun, and also shoot them in Silhouette competition. So, these should be considered warmer than normal target loads, but extremely accurate to at least 100m. OAL determined by "plunk test" in individual barrels: 200gr SWC (H&G-68, hard cast): 5.5gr Bullseye 230gr LRN (swaged or cast very soft): 6.5gr Unique Both these loads are hot enough to expand a modern case sufficiently to seal the chamber. This is a concern these days since brass has been made crazy strong to handle the poor case support in Glock barrels. Both loads ARE within SAAMI spec. For old guns that don't feed everything and may not be fully heat treated, reduce loads by 0.5gr. If your older gun will not feed lead, ask me how to adjust the barrel ramp if you are feeling brave.
