Whats your pet 25 yd short course load.........I need a good 25yd load for indoors accurate & soft ...so I can build my .45 skills......Ive got my Range Officer shooting well I cant tell you how many times Ive put the first 1-3 shots into the 10 ring on a slow fire target only to get chicken finger or loosen my grip and throw the last 2......

Same as my outdoor loads - both short and long line. For me the simpler the better. 4 grains of Bullseye under either a 185 or 200 grain SWC.

I am suffering from a similar problem right now with my 45. Having experimented with different loads (I use the same for slow and sustained), I did find a few points in my sustained fire by going to a 185 gn hollow point but that was primarily due to recoil management. I saw no change in slow fire and really didn't expect it there. Slow fire is much more of a mental game than sustained. You have much more time to mess things up by trying to be too perfect.

My efforts to improve slow fire will be on mental focus more than anything. I have a hard time focusing on something for that long of a period of time. I am so bad sometimes, I end up looking at everyone else' targets during league night to see how everyone else is doing. I don't do it to see if I am beating anyone, my mind just wanders off with my natural curiosity.

Load depends on other things, like are you shooting lead or fmj? and if using a slide mounted dot or not, it takes 3.8-9 be to cycle with the dot, 3.6 will run w/open sights with lead, fmj's will take a couple of tenths more.

I'm useing irop's but I'm goin with 3.8 B.E. and 3.9 clays......my lee disks dont give me the 3.6 option with B.E. & dont let me load 3.8 clays ......I dont think a tenth or 2 is gonna make much diff. recoil wise......oh ya 200gr Lswc......Ive diceded to stay with 200's just to keep it simple and load wise 3.8-3.9 seems to be the general # for both powders......I really like the way the B.E. loads ......time to do alot of dry fire.....oh ya!!!!!!!!!

I'm also using 3.8 grains of Bullseye and a 200 grain lead SWC. My pistol has a slide-mounted UltraDot. I used this today at 50 yards and it appears that I don't need to adjust my sight going from 25 to 50 yards with this load.
