I've carried a .45 for most of my adult life, so with that in mind, the recoil from an all steel pistol, even with full house military equivalent loads does not bother me. But....90% of my shooting with both steel and alloy framed 1911's is with 200 gr LSWC's at ~800 fps. In spite of the target level velocity, this in no cream-puff load, and that sharp shoulder cuts big holes in most anything it hits. My point is mentioning this is that, short of full on CC purposes, lighter, lead alloy target grade bullets are easier on the gun and the shooter.
Bond Arms states in there manual; Do not use +p ammo.I don't get what is the problem with Magtech brand ammo. As for +P in a Bond .45 ACP barrel, I can't see how that would be a problem when they sell barrels in much more powerful calibers, but I won't do it. Thanks!
