OK out of general curiosity of current snake shot available in various pistol calibers, for the all time great performance in 1911s, CCI 45acp is hands down the best so far. Yes it does cycle the pistol since it's a copy of the old USGI snake shot. There's more if anyone's interested. Target on left is 5 feet, target on right is 10 feet out of a 5" 1911A1. Ignore the big holes, I just reused some targets that got hit by someone that couldn't shoot a group.
