Pardon my ignorance, but are lighter grain bullets, ie, 185gr, more efficient in shorter barrel 1911s? I've always been partial to the standard 230gr for both my full-size Springfield Loaded and my Colt Officer.
Wondering if I might be better served with muzzle velocity and energy going with the lighter rounds for SD in the all-steel Officer, which is what I carry most of the time.
Specifically, I'm considering the difference between The Remington Golden Sabers:
Bullet Weight :185 GR
Muzzle Energy :423 ft lbs
Muzzle Velocity :1015 fps
Bullet Weight : 230 GR
Muzzle Energy : 391 ft lbs
Muzzle Velocity : 875 fps
