Looks clean enough to me, I don't shoot reloads. I shoot whatever cheapest or availible blazer, wolf, whatever. The ammo i was shooting was Monarch .45 acp 230 grain. Gunna give ruger a call and see what they say. The nearest range is an hour away so i guess i'll replace the recoil spring for $10 and get a bunch of different ammo and see what happens. Thanks for all the help guys.
