    Mixed round mag

    Has anyone ever used a mixed round mag in a 1911

    I was planning to mix my Hornady Critical Defence HP with my reg. HP ammo in a 7 rd mag

    Just want to know if it is good or bad idea before I do it

    Never saw the need. On a side note, Critical Defense isn't all that it's cracked up to be and t's not like you have to worry about penetrating cold weather clothing in Texas or anything.

    I use HP just in case I'm forced to engage someone with body armor

    The impact is greater than FMJ & Critical Defense flattens better

    I have seen impact test with light and med. body armor over clay busts

    The indents in the clay were deeper with HP than FMJ.....blunt trauma was greater
