After looking at the profiles of those Lyman bullets, I'd say that the 452389 is hopeless, the 452488 isn't much better and the 452460 might work. Dial-up warning, lots of pics.

The 452630 works in my old Remington-Rand 1911A1, as it has a longer nose that helps it make the turn from the magazine to the chamber. It's got an original unmodified barrel.

Uncle Nick has a diagram at the end of this thread that shows how to seat .45 ACP bullets. You can go .005" long with cast bullets and every bit helps.

Somewhere I read that semi-wadcutter bullets work better in a magazine with an early release. If you have more than one magazine, see if one releases earlier than the others.
