This right here, I chased feeding problems for quite a while after building my 1911. Since it was my first build, the problem HAD to be me, well it was just not with the build. I load my own ammo, took too long to learn how important the crimp is regarding feeding especially with a 'match' barrel, (I'm such a great shot don't ya know, I HAD to have one when I ordered the build parts).Lead 200gr SWC's are as reliable as ball ammo, they are ONLY maligned because they are improperly seated by most handloaders. I have the following 100% stock 1911's and ALL digest my 200gr SWC's with 100% reliabilty. Colt Comp Series '70, SA LW Loaded Oper, SA TRP Oper. I ONLY load Lead 200gr SWC these days, as their accuracy is unrivaled in my guns.
