Not wanting to fill a .416 thread w/ .45 questions,but i need any info regarding feed problems in the pt 945. I believe ive addressed all the obvious, but is there anything inherent in the design, especially the mag spring or ejector that could slow the rate of feed and allow the slide to pinch the fresh cartridges?

With the PT908, I did experience considerable feeding problems with the longer OAL 9mm cartridges like the 147gr Black Talon. The long, narrow taper to the bullet put the OAL out there at the edge of the cartridge, and caused numerous FTFs when the tip of the bullet lodged against the feed ramp and locked up. Slightly shorter loads, like the Federal HS and Remington GS did not have this problem. I'm not sure about the .45, though, and I know that's what you're interested in.
