I tried them in a 1911A1 several years ago and was able to shoot handloaded shot capsules but not successfully. First of all I had to seat the capsules as deep as possible to chamber them, they would not feed from the magazine with splitting and dumping shot in the pistol's innards and finally they would not cycle the action or eject. These shot capsules were fired in a GI 1911A1 that had with many rounds fired through it. A tight match type barrel may not allow you to chamber at all or be to short. The only way I could load and carry was to load the the shot cartridge manually and gently drop the slide...effectively a single shot autoloader. Not good! :uhoh:

They work fine in a 625 (revolver) not so well in a bottom feeder though.
