I like the 1911 (I own two), but I hate it when hardcore devotees of any brand / style of guns look down their noses at other styles of guns. It's a luddite mentality.
If the you want to use the 800-X and you find that the RCBS uniflow powder measurer is giving too much variance, you might figure what the center of the safe range for 800-X is and see if the variance does not throw you outside of the safe range.
I've had a few powders which did not meter well, but I've rarely had the variance be so great that I couldn't keep the load within a safe range by doing what I describe. If your variance is higher than that, throw your loads on the low side, measure each one and add powder until you hit your mark. Difficult but do-able.
