Doubletap 185gr JHP - safe for 16lb recoil spring in a 1911?




http://www.doubletapammo.com/php/cat...products_id=93

Shot 2 rounds of this out of my Ed Brown SF running a 16lb recoil spring today.

Can that damage the frame? Sounds like a silly question...but just wondering.

Would it be safe to shoot more of it? I know usually if you get into +P territory you want a 18lb spring.

I'm pretty sure Mike designed this ammo around the 16# spring. Anything heavier and you might see a few issues. ie: Failure to eject or feed.

The only ammo I have seen him recommend a heavier spring on would be when you fire the .450 SMC from a .45 ACP 1911. He recommends you change your spring out to a 22# spring when you shoot .450 SMC.
