I have a stainless fullsize 1911 and an XD .45 ACP. Is it safe to run yellow "Lead-Away" cloth patches down the bore? The patches clean really well, but I'm not sure if they will weaken or abrade the bore.

Why would they damage anything, are they inpregnated (lol) with a cleaning solution? I think as long as you don't use anything containing amonia you'll be o.k.
I personally use break free and Hopes to clean, and for lubrication I use remington gun oil, and standard CLP. I just use regular cloth patches, and if I'm out I'll use pieces of an old t shirt. I have been wanting to use some of the blue wonder products, just havn't gotten around to it.

The lead away cloths are pretty abrasive - I would be reluctant to use them in the bore for fear of rounding the rifling.

I have used lead away as cleaning patches for nearly 20 years.
Especially in big bore revolvers shooting cast bullets and on 22 caliber pistols I use for training. I have never seen any indication that they are too abrasive.
Lots of revolver shooters use them on their stainless guns after every match... and those are often highly polished pieces.
