I read an article on wilsoncombat.com about ammo for compact 1911s. Their recommendation was not to shoot 230gr in a compact 45. Their reasoning is quoted below from their article.
"The pistol needs a certain amount of time to eject a fired case, allow the magazine to lift, position the next round for proper feeding and chamber the round. When slide mass is reduced and therefore slide cycle speed increased there may not be time for this to all happen properly.
The ammunition you DO NOT want to shoot in compact 1911s is 230gr +P loads!"
Does anyone here know anything about this? I have used this round in the past with a 4506, that definitely does not qualify as a compact.
