Default cast bullets in M&P 45?

Do cast bullets work OK in M&P 45's? I'm an old revolver guy thinking about trying an M&P but it'll have to shoot lead to make me happy.

Default No problem

I'm using commercially cast bullets in my M&P .45 without issues. Just be careful not to attempt +P loads with all lead bullets (unless hard-cast) as they may strip through the rifling, causing excessive fouling and killing accuracy.
