    Page 56 of my Springfield 1911 Operations and Safety Manual reads as such at the bottom of the page:
    Note: 1911-A1 Ultra-Compact Pistols are designed to use standard pressure ball ammo and self-defense loads. +P ammunition is not recommended in pistols shorter than 5 inches. Use only clean, dry, original, high-quality, commercially manufactured ammunition.

    Thanks, Sleipnir; i missed it.

    I forgot to mention mine is a full-size 1911 and it appears I'd be okay:
    "....+P ammunition is not recommended in pistols shorter than 5"."
