Hello everyone, I usually load 200 grain LSWC bullets for 45ACP. However, I discovered a box of 185s that I'd forgotten about. Is anyone willing to share their experience loading WST for 185 JHP bullets for iron sighted 1911's? Also, if you had to reduce the recoil spring weight, what worked for you. Thanks.

I'm using 4.7 WST with Zero 185 JHP for the long line.

.45 acp 180,185 and 200 gr LSWC either lubed or Hitek coated, I get good results with 3.9 - 4.0 gr WST

.45 acp 185 JHP I have run them as low as 4.1 and as high as 4.6 gr WST. I like the 4.3 - 4.5 gr WST
