I load the 230 grain Ranier Ballistics bullets in .45 ACP, both round nose and hollowpoint. They are .452 dia, electroplated lead. As long as you're loading for a 1911 (or other autoloader) your velocities will be low enough to cause no problems.

If you're loading them in a Ruger revolver with a .45 ACP cylinder, you can load them hot enough to cause pretty severe leading. A gas check helps, but the smart thing to do is to shoot jacketed bullets, which are almost always .451 dia.
