I tried these in my 45 ACP loads a while back and they didn't do well at all. Tons of feeding problems in my 1911; literally every other shot.

I'm sure they'd do fine in a 45LC, or something similar but I'm not going to use them anymore for 45 ACP.

I mostly shoot indoors and the lube smoke on lead bullets bugs me. Yes I was aware lead is much cheaper. Well see how these work if I don't like them I can just trade them or sell them. There is always mixed reviews on the internet so I can't say anything till I load and shoot them.

Was that possibly a problem with the overall length?
