I have been told that the early .45 acp ammo for the Colt M1905 had a 200 grain bullet. Then for the 1911 the bullet weight was increased to 230 grains which is still standard for military ball ammo, and the power charge increased to today's standard. Can anyone confirm this? Has anyone ever seen a cartridge box marked "For Colt M1905 Automatic? I have asked this question on another ammo section of this forum and have received no response. Best Wishes to all.

.45 AC Pistol Ammo

After taking the above suggestion, I found the M1905 .45 ammo. It was loaded with only a 200 grain bullet, for those of you interested. When I got my Colt M1905 .45, I just had to shoot it. I used 185 grain semi-wadcutter target ammo. It functioned perfectly for 7 rounds and then I retired it from shooting.
