Hey guys.

Sorry I've been gone for a while. But just wanted to say thanks again for all your help and input on my gun purchases. My first was Springfield XD-40 which I used to qualify for my CCP. The second was actually a gift from my wife a new DPMS A3-L16 with 2-30rd and 2-20rd mags. Maybe not what I would have bought but a good gun none the less. Next I decided I would rather have a 45 so I traded the Springfield for a new Colt Gold Cup. I love these guns! My brother and I have been out to a range close to his home. It's owned by an retired military guy and his wife. Great people. They have a lot of current military and law enforcement personnel working the range. These guys were very helpful to a couple of rookies. They took the time to show us all aspects of our guns and the range. So thanks again for all your help.

How did the Gold Cup handle big, wide hollowpoints? I ask because in the past there were feeding problems with them. If yours is recent production, the ramp & throat job that used to be necessary may not be needed.

Big Hollowpoints

ecaman,

I haven't tried any hollow points yet. But, the gun is new production. I am in the process of buying up ammo right now. I shot FMJ's at the range just to get used to the pistol. I will say this. The gun was way smoother than I expected. I was banging the center of the target at 20-25yrds with no problem. For a rookie I was well pleased. I will update you guys as I cycle through different loads and let you know what if any problems I encounter.

Big hollow points

I carry hydra shocks or winchester's in 70 my series gold cup and she works like a charm. I have made no mods or changes to it.
