    Is there a performance difference in using 185gr SWC over 200gr. SWC cast bullets for my 1911? I am shooting paper target at 25 yard.

    Not sure what you mean by "performance difference" but at 25 yards out of my "Wad Gun" both 200 and 185 swc's cut a ragged hole at 25 yds for a group. At 50 yds they will both stay well inside the 10 ring on a standard 50 yd bullseye target, I wish I could do as well! The only difference for me is slightly less recoil with the 185 when loaded to the same velocity as the 200.
