    I have had good function with Mcormick and Mec Gar. You may also want to try Metalform, I have had good results with them in .45 and 10mm.

    +1. That’s what I carried on duty for years without a problem. MidwayUSA has them on sale frequently. I like the metal follower but I had to get the Wilson’s (w/ plastic followers) for my alloy frame Commander and Officer’s model (to avoid gouging the frame internally under the barrel).

    Non issue with your Ruger LW as far as I know. Ruger inserts a titanium feed ramp on the LW. The frame gouging was a problem on older alloy guns, but to my understanding with modern metallurgy it has become less of an issue.

    Another thumbs up for Powermags. I have a bunch.

    It was common to chew up the frames feed ramp with JHP's on the early alloy frame guns.
    The answer was a steel frame insert or the "new" ramped barrels. Both options required milling the aluminum frame.

    For me, the plastic follower was “an ounce of prevention”. I only have two alloy frame Colt’s, both are relatively new, and it might be a non-issue but I didn’t want to find out the hard way.
