    Mine eats whatever you feed it but my pet loads are going to be 230 grain SWC's. The grips were too fat for my liking. I went with Pachmayr's for a little while but I just like the feel of wood so much better. Those Chip McCormick mags are top notch. Not cheap feeling like the ACT and best of all no bumper.

    How do those compare to Wilson Combat mags?

    Never used a Wilson Combat but I'd say the Wilson's are a cut above. Mine work with anything you put in them and they're much better feeling than the ACT. They look and feel more like a Colt mag. They can't be disassembled is the only drawback I can see. I would imagine the Wilson's have a better finish also but for the price they're top notch in function and reliability.
    The floor plate is drilled if you wish to put bumpers on them. Personally I can't stand bumpers.

    I use wilson combats mostly but mccormics are my second choice. I know metalform makes good mags too but I just always go with wilsons because they have never let me down.

    I looked at Wilson's but for the price of one I could get two of these.
