I would like to shoot steel but rules require a power factor of less than 150 and no jacketed bullets. I only have .45 1911s. Is there a lead comercial ammo with a PF of less than 150? Will this require a new spring in a pistol that runs 230 FMJ, JHP and Black Hills 200 gr. LSWC?

Thank you for your help.


If you reload you can purchase the sinterfire
(clean bullet) and use approx. a 12-14lb recoil spring (check your ejected case high,low arc to change the springs).

Also Longbow at one time offered a custom loaded "light" frangible round.
