    For those with SA mil specs

    was wondering if anyone could suggest a good defensive load for a SA milspec. i am really interested in Federal EFMJ's or some sort of JHP, but i don't really know where to start. Basically reliability is my main concern and thats why i was looking for something with the ball profile but with some expansion....

    Go to www.corbon.com and check out the powerball. Also look at the DPX, it looks MEAN.

    I ran across an article about defensive ammo recently. It is an opinion piece that lists specific ammo for each caliber along with some supporting arguments for some of the choices. Good? Bad? It may be a good place to start and may spark some discussions. It is a long piece.

    The article is at http://www.chuckhawks.com/ammo_by_anonymous.htm.

    I haven't had any problems with any type of ammo I have feed my mil-spec. I have used ball, JHP, JSP, even wadcutters, never a single FTF. After about 3,000 rounds I started having a FTRTB, and a spring changed git her back up and running again.

    my springer will function with almost anything now that it's broken in. i use remington 230 gr. golden sabres for defensive use. never had a single problem with them, except cost lol.

    +1 corbon. jhp or pow'r ball, either will function fine in a mil-spec.

    I've fed mine everything from the evil old school Israeli surplus baby bottle nipple-shaped wadcutters (which are my test for any 1911 - if it feeds those, it'll feed *anything*) to Hydrashocks to Golden Sabers to whatever was on sale that day, and it just doesn't care.

    It's a shame I don't like the gun as much as my others.

    Not surprised! I wasn't sure of the age, but figured it as beginning reference. It would be nice to see an updated list like this.

    Thanks for setting me straight on the age of the info. I didn't have the point of reference that you have. Haven't been into handguns as long.
