7 rounds is plenty. Check Natchez's site, Chip Mccormick Shooting Star's are a steal. I'm thinking less than $10 (usd)\n \nA capable 1911 shooter doesn't need more than one round. I can rapidfire that one round into a single hole at 25 yards in a fraction of a second. No ragged edges on the target either. And I can do it with either hand.
