If I have a full size and sub compact 3" barrel 1911 (para warthog) is it ok to shoot 200g rounds? im only shooting at paper and I heard the 200g bullets have less recoil then the 230g ammo. I am going to start reloading my own rounds too. Im going to be using only lead too, no FMJ till the price drops or i find a really good deal.

Yes 200 gr. ammo is perfectly fine to shoot and reload for, though the recoil thing is way too subjective to tell. Going down in weight usually gives me snappier felt recoil.
