For me none of those were true. I first used WWB 230 ball and it functioned great but kicked like a mule. It felt like it was about to self destruct compared to a normal length all metal autoloader (P90, or 1911 etc). Not smooth at all and I didn't enjoy the feel as I was shooting it. It was like cutting a tree down with a Stihl chainsaw then switching to a Poulan Walmart saw. That's the best comparison to how it felt in my hands vs steel 45's I've shot. Then I switched to 200 LSWC's with medium light charge weights and once again I was disappointed. It failed to eject every one of them. Apparently the recoil springs on these are designed for full power or defensive loads only. Sure, that's nice and after all it is a 45... but what about the guys that shoot for enjoyment and practice and prefer to not be blasting away for hundreds of rounds at a time. It looks like there's only a slightly weaker spring available (wolff has a 15 instead of a 17 lb spring) but even still, slightly weaker is the key word there, it may not do the trick for light loads (curious on feedback here). I'd expect to still have issues if I were to shoot light loads as a staple. Curious if maybe I'm overlooking something here. Maybe I should try a G17 or G19? All I know is in .45acp, metal guns feel better in my hands than the G30. Maybe the G21 would be a little more like the full size metal 45's I've shot in the past. I know the guide rod and spring is more similar in length and style to a 1911 etc than the dual spring captive rod in the G30.
