Considering an M&P 45. I reload for my 1911s and use a 200gr SWC. Has anyone tried this bullet style?



Is the chamber on the M&P 45 fully supported?



Thanks

1500+ 200gr LRNFP's and not a single FTF, whereas I just recently had one 200gr JSWC's hang up so I'm going to shorten the COL, but the RN stuff has fed flawlessly. Bummer, because my 1911 loves the SWC.



200gr LRNFP, 1.200" COL:

4.5 grains Bullseye; good target load but dirty

5.3 grains Universal, very clean and great all-around target/practice load

7.3 grains AA#5, slowest powder I've run in .45 ACP; my 1911 hates it but my M&P loves it.

I shot my M&P 45 last Saturday for the first time with my 200 gr. SWC load. 250 down the pipe and not a single issue.



I shot a match tonight (bowling pins at 25, 20, 15 & 10 yarde and it was perfect, and far more accurate than I could have ever imagined as this was a load developed for my match-grade 1911's.

I had hoped that would be the case!



Does the chamber look to be fully supported?



Thanks
