Thanks for the follow up post. 1911 barrels often have little free bore because the bullet diameter and profile of the 230 grain FMJ bullet does not require much free bore when seated to the designed OAL. Things can get real "sticky" with bullets that have a shoulder or bullets that do not have an ogive that matches the dimensions of the 230 grain ball load.
