Beautiful day with the temp kissing the 50 degree mark, so I thought I'd try my new Rock Island Armory 1911A1. Here's a sample from my outing:

Really shot well, I was suprised & pleased. It shot better than my out of the box SA Mil-Spec.
Target was at 50ft. Ammo of choice was 5.5gr W231 pushing a 230gr Berry's Plated RN, 100 rounds without a hiccup. Then I tried Winchester SXZ45 Personal Protection 230gr JHP, failed to feed right out of the starting gate. Oh well, not suprised. It's a fine gun for the money.

I believe RIA recommends running regular ammo through it first. At least 500 rounds I think then try running JHP. Mine shoots anything I feed it. Congrats on your RIA by the way.

If it is truly 'mil spec' it will not like ammo other than 230g ball.

Kinda disagree with that,I've got old Systemas that will shoot HP ammo all day.'08.
