Barnes TTSX is a tricky bullet to get to work right, or maybe Sierra just has me spoiled. I worked up a load in my Swede and tried in my 308 and 30-06 they seem to be hyper sensitive to seating depth. If I need more penetration I'll stick to my Partitions, Deep Curls, or Accubonds they are MUCH easier to get them shooting good.
the XTP bullets expand very well. i have dug some out of pine stumps and the expansion is great along with penetration. definately not something i would want to be shot with!
and yes, they do feed very well in my 1911's. all of them, with not one issue ever. i also load them in 44 Spl. and 44 Magnum as well.
