Black Powder in a 1911

Cemetery shows us what the clean up job looks like. He recently got an AR-15, and was joking about working up a black powder .223 load. Well, maybe not joking. It’s hard to tell. If anyone was going to do it, it was going to be him. No matter how wrong it may be. But Cemetery is that kind of shooter who thinks if… working up a black powder load for whatever gun you can imagine is wrong… he doesn’t want to be right.

  1. It’s my understanding that it’s possible to get a “government-issue standard” 1911 for around $300. For black powder stuff, such a gun would probably be ideal!

    I probably wouldn’t want to use black powder in a $2500 precision commemorative 1911, though.

  2. It would be interesting to see if the “Guns of the South” BP AK stuff would actually work.
