This is my ammo of choice whenever I carry a 1911 off-duty. It functions perfectly through my Springfield Compact and custom Commander. Nice velocity, great expansion and lower recoil because of the lighter bullet weight. Winchester has improved upon the earlier design and made a good round even better.
