I am looking to order some Missouri Bullets.

I normally shoot 230 RN/200 SWC for 45ACP and 155 FMJ/180 TCFP for 40S&W with very good results.

Never shot the 200 RNFP for 45ACP and 170 SWC for 40S&W. What's been your experience, especially feeding issues in particular?

TIA

I'm on my first 1,000 of the 200-RNFP and really like them so far. Seated them at the crimp grove under WST. Having good luck with them so far no feeding problems. A little leading but it may be because I'm pushing them to slow. I might try some of their Cowboy #4 which is the same bullet but softer (I guessing I'm somewhere around 735-785fps).

If you putting an order in try some of their 250 pin busters, they are great (same bullet design) with a healthy dose of WSF it makes quite a hard hitting round...fun for pins.

I can't comment of the 40 as I don't load for that one.

In my 1911s, a Springer Loaded and Rock Island Compact, I've shot MB's 185gr SWC, 200gr RNFP (Cowboy #4 - I ordered these before he made the harder ones) and 230gr RN with no problems whatsoever. Personally, I really like the 185s for plinkers and paper punching - nice, clean holes - and I suspect you'll like the 200s, too.

You're not running a Springfield XD, are you? Storyline is those guns just do not like SWCs. Check MB's "XD" bullet (IDPA #4, I think?) if you do.

Thanks for the feedbacks. I think I will add a box of each to my order to try them out.

I am only punching paper and steel plates, so I will pass on the 250s.

I wasn't planning to order the 45 185, but will add a box to try it out as well. BTW, they will be shot in 5" 1911s and PT145Pro - they all feed/shoot my current 200 SWC/230 RN very well.

The 170gr sometimes fails to feed only requiring me to pull the slide back a quarter inch and release to battery. At the range its no issue but the 180gr is more reliable for me.

I'm really enjoying the 230gr Softball in my 1911.

And MB's speed in delivery for me has been outstanding,
