I bet you are fine, I think they are manufactured differently.

As long as you're a baller that shoots JHPs and has a Hundo, it's a quick check of the match ammo and a who cares of the practice ammo.

 

What happens when you shoot a 12 grain jacket-only bullet instead of a 124 grain JHP bullet, with 8 grains of HS-6 behind it? I'm thinking that jacket gets all out of whack down the bore then hits the comp on the way out.

Or it just blows a hole in the base of the jacket and you still get a squib.

Welcome to Open, a shitfuckton of powder behind a light bullet.

There's not enough neck tension without the lead, so the mostly likely outcome is it won't have enough pressure /recoil to cycle the action.  The fun part happens when you chamber a fresh round with full weight bullet without checking to see why it went POPFFFFT instead of BANG.  If you're lucky the empty bullet jacket is laying on the ground about 3 feet in front of you, if you're not lucky.........Ouch!
