Looking for recommendations on which coated 45 bullets are good for indoor use. As a new guy, I want to keep recoil manageable, so looking at the lighter weight bullets 160-185 probably. Want to try coated since our ventilation isn't the best and during rapid fire it looks like a civil war re-enactment. Kimber 1911, irons, with Clays, if that's germane to the conversation. Thanks in advance!

Brazo’s Bullets have given winning performances with their coated bullets.

I would try Brazos Hi Tek coated 160 gr. SWC over 4.0 WST.  4.0 Clays would work, but WST is a bit cleaner.  May have to go with a lighter recoil spring to ensure function.

James did you happen to chronograph any of these loads. Just curious.
I used the Brazos  below and here is my data from Sept 14 2019 using a Springfield stock 1911 Range Ofiicer.

Brazos 180 grain LSWC bhn 13 HI TEK Flat base Bullseye poeder 4.0 grains Avg velocity of 10 rounds 724.3 fps
The rest of my data is on this forum

50 ft pretty much any quality bullet will work.

I’m on the Brazos website. They show a 155 and a 160. What’s the difference?

5 grains..

The 160 is similar to the H&G S242...

The 155 I was generated for some IPSC deal?

Well to be honest, I've never shot the 155's.  The 160's are awesome though.  We don't sell many 155's since we worked out the kinks in sizing the 160's.

I shot a 100-6x timed with the 160 coated Brazos bullets yesterday with 4.6 WST. I like em.

Good job Zane!  I too had a good day with them.  Averaged 97 at the short line CF and 45.   The recoil impulse is so nice.  Makes it so easy to get back on target.
