The only thing I have run through my Firestorm 1911 is 230 gr FMJs. No problems there.

I've only run FMJ through mine as well, but its a nice shooter. With its setup, I doubt JHPs would be an issue.

Mine would eat anything. Shot many different brands of HP through it.

Interesting.

I'll have to try some HPs.

I never planned to carry it, so it didn't really matter much.

From someone who owns both, I would say which ever you can get at the lowest price. The Firestorm Deluxe is a beautiful 1911. If my decision was based purely on asthestics, it would be my choice. However, based on form, function, and performance, I would go with the best buy.

I prefer the Firestorm over my RIA, but I don't own the Tactical.
