A 250 gr bullet is too much bullet in a 1911. I use 255 gr in my .45 colt cas guns. As the 1911 pistol and it’s ammo was designed by JMB a jacketed or plain lead 230 gr rn is the correct bullet. However imo a 200 gr is a better bullet, it generates less recoil, does not seat as far into the case which can cause bulges and chambering issues and each bullet weighs less so they should be less expensive. A heavier bullet would work fine in a revolver if you don’t mind the recoil.
