Any reasons to NOT use large pistol magnum primers in a 1911?

Discussion in '1911 Forums' started by Thirties, Mar 2, 2013.

  1. Local store only has large pistol magnum primers in that size. Any reasons to not use them in me 1911 pistols? These are not race guns.

    Thanks.

    You would get a much better response to this question in the Reloading forum.No one in here actually shoots their 1911's.They are just for posting pretty internet pictures...:whistling:

    I use them with a light BlueDot load, plated 230g bullet, no worries.

    I wouldn't hesitate to use them for any .45 ACP gun. I believe that Winchesters large pistol primers apply to both magum and standard loads. That being said, I wouldn't use them on some ++++P+++++ load I worked up in my basement that is already close to blowing my guns apart!

    Using a mag primer in any load can be ok, as long as you do it right. If you are loading at or near max, you should back it off a little and work back up with the mag primers. If you are loading a mouse fart load anyway, you dont have to worry about pressure.

    I've used them a bunch of times with no issues, they should add 20-25 fps to the same load with standard primers.
