and gets 1200 fps rather easily, in fact. The problem is not that such loads are dangerous, it's that they are very hard to control in rapidfire, even with the full size and wt 1911, that nobody actually CARRIES much, if at all. In an alloy commander, 185 at 1200 fps is a real beast. It slams the gun back into your hand so hard that if you don't have stocks and a ducktail on the gun, a flinch is bound to get inculcated. Even with the stocks and ducktail, it's the sort of thing that you'd have to do a LOT of getting used to, and you'd never get repeat hits much under .35 second, and you'd beat up a lot of such lw guns trying to do so, too..

Another excuse to cover your flinching problem. Strong wrists along with practice and proper technique takes care of flinching.

which is why the ammo makers WUSSY load the .45, and why they pump out so much BS about how "effective" such loads (and the .40, too) are. In reality, they aint much, if any better than the far more controlable 90 gr 9mm, which can be had in a far handier gun, ie, the Kahr PM9 9mm pocket gun. The gun you aint GOT is no value in a fight, and neither is the gun that you cant' bring to bear FAST enough.
