Once again, the 1911 shows that it runs ammo very differently depending upon what gun you're shooting it through.

Lyman handbook shows a 230 grain slug loaded on top of 4.0 WST to make 775 FPS

GS got:
The average MV was 695 fps with 4.0 grains of WST for a PF of 160

This reinforces what WB shooters have known for a good while -
You MUST check your 1911 loads over a chrono at similar conditions to the match you will be shooting, or else you need to at least try to hit a 165 PF so you will have some wiggle room when you get to a match!

Good luck, GJ
