Guys,

I just resurrected a couple of IPSC double column 1911 based Supers. Have enough cast for practice and FMJs for matches, but have long since run out of XTPs for business ammo.

Any recommendations for 125 to 135 gr projectiles to be pushed pretty hard ... 1300 to 1400 fps ... that are actually buyable in the current environment?

Thank you

If your sights will allow it, I recommend the conventional Remington 115g JHP. Drive to 1370--1515fps max.
I suggest around 1400--1450 best for business.

If insistent on a 124--135g HP, suggest the Gold Dot or Sierra's 125g. Suggest not exceeding 1480fps.

I interchange data for 124 XTPs and MG 124 HPs in my Supers. However, I don't expect the MGs to do anything but make small groups on paper targets.
