    1911 extractor damage/breakage?

    I have been told the steel case ammo can be damaging to 1911 extractors.

    Internal extractors not External extractors.

    I was given 500 rds of WOLF .45 acp,230 gr.

    I can shoot it in my 'beater' 1911 (Springfield), but I'm not sure about using this ammo in my custom Colt.

    Any info about steel cased .45 acp ammo being used in 1911's with Internal extractors would be most apprecated.
