That's smoking. I think my best was somewhere around 1.43. I don't think my OWB draw is that fast.

I'd start with the one you shoot the best. Whichever you are most accurate with and can get on target the fastest is the one I would suggest. After that, consider comfort and method of carry. A...

Yeah. I know you know how to load. It was more general info for new loaders. The 1.275 230gr FMJ OAL that Lyman lists only feeds in one of my 5 1911s.

Not a problem. Not much different than leaving the gun locked open. I know I've left one locked open in the safe for weeks more than once.

I'm sure you've heard about the Wolff XP spring #32725....

Lyman tends to use max OAL in some calibers which doesnt work in all guns so you have to make sure you work up the loads especially if you shorten it.

They are probably also using different OALs.

5.2-5.3 is a very popular charge for a 230gr RN bullet.

Have you tried the used market or Gunbroker? Champions are not generally that hard to find especially used.

Edit: just did a quick search on GB and there are several steel Champions listed.

I have about 14k through my alloy Kimber. My neighbor and I are experimenting with a LW Champion trying to see if we can wear it out. Last count was somewhere in the 60-64k range.

New Springfield 1911-A1 Question

A pic would definitely be helpful but, to me, it sounds like a basic Loaded model. Some years came with different finishes and guide rods and a bunch were discontinued a few years back.
