I got bored and decided to fire some woods loads out of my carry gun, normally I do not use these in this gun since it's setup for 230 HST and 185/160 supers not the full weight stuff. The USP or a fullsize 1911 are the ones that usually fulfill this job but hey.....I was fairly sure it would be fine and it was so yay! I can now carry this thing for everything including hunting stuff with a pointy stick as the fail safe option. Reliability off practice mags was just dandy and there wasn't even primer drag, that one surprised me a lot since while it makes sense it's fine for the lighter stuff I didn't think the super heavy wouldn't overdrive the unlock.

Gun didn't feel bad at all, no "hammering" feeling or spring hesitation and the flip was actually about the same as range ammo out of a fullsize non-comped. Felt like a .45 going off not a comped one is the best way to describe it, outclasses a 10mm quite nicely and this gun allows use of now every load that fits in the chamber with no changes needed at all.

Stout loading! I have shot 45 Super and 450 SMC in my USP 45 but never a 1911.

Depending on the 1911 it's way nicer on the hand and easier to shoot quickly. I have a USP tactical that also uses these and it does well but FLIPS hard

That is a stiff power factor, up there or higher than woods loads I've seen in 10mm or 357m...The WCCC looks like it is recoiling like 230 grain uncomped in a commander size gun...Good job, it isn't obvious to everyone how versitile 45 caliber is, you can go from 9mm pfs all the way past 357/10mm.

One word of caution: Be careful where you post that vid, you look like you are having way, way, too much fun shooting that stuff, the Lefty may ban you from their media outlets, not only because you have a gun, but because you've exceeded their "acceptable amount of fun" limits.
