I have a Colt 1911 gold cup bought in 1989 -- series 80 blue.

After sitting in my safe for about 20 years, I'm starting to shoot it again.

The ammo I've found is UMC 230 gr FMJ that comes in 250 rnd "magapacks".

My question is, should I get a different recoil spring, or is it OK to shoot this stuff?

I also have a Smith and Wesson 625 JM in 45 ACP and I can pretty much shoot anything in that revolver. But I'd like to shoot my Colt also.

But, like everyone else, I'm rather limited in what ammo I can find at reasonable prices.
