Not in a .45 compact, but in a 3" 1911 I did. I tested a whole bunch of ammo out of the short tube maybe 10 years ago. The info is dated now, but if you want it I can email it to you. My expansion media was water.

I use 230gr ball and JHP; same as in my Commander and FS 1911's.

Rick, you use ball ammo as "carry" ammo in a 1911?

The Hydrashoks while still ok, are somewhat out of date. Bullet design has come along way. Anything off DocGKR's list for .45's would be great!

Service Pistol Ammo Recommendations

Hope this helps!
