Default PX4 Storm (.45acp) and semi-wadcutters...?

In the next couple of weeks I'll be acquiring a new PX4 Storm full size in .45acp.
In years past I did a lot of Bullseye shooting and have approx 600 rounds of 200Gr. semi-wadcutters I loaded for Bullseye competition that I shot through a Kimber Limiter Edition Target Match. That gun is being sold to a friend but I'm keeping the ammo.
I'm wondering from those who have the .45acp Storm if you have ever tried shooting semi-wadcutters through it, and did you have any feeding problems with them........?

600 rounds is a lot of reloads, especially when you make them on a single stage press, I'd hate to think they wouldn't work with this new pistol.....

200Gr. semi-wadcutters come in two basic forms, short nose, and long nose. My Kimber eat the long nose wadcutters all day, every day without a single stove pipe. It hated the short nose wadcutters and gave me all kinds of feeding problems. The ammo I have is of the long nose variety so I'm confident they will feed, but I was hoping someone on the forum who has a full size Storm in .45acp and possibly tried feeding it semi-wadcutters would chime in......

Either way jimmyp I will try them when I get the pistol......
