Howdy,
I shoot a S&W M625, 45ACP Revolver for PPC. I have been using 200gr swc, w/ 4.0 Bullseye. Can anybody recommend a light 185 gr load ?? I use full moon clips so functioning, as with an automatic, is not an issue. thanks, john

I have had good luck with 3.8-to-4.0 grains of WST.
3.8 grains turn about 700 fps on my crono.

Try 3.5 grains of CFE pistol powder and seat 1.250 oal. Or 3.5 of WST.

I have had very good success with 4.5 N310 with the Zero 185 JHP. 1.200" OAL shoots great in the bullseye guns.
Thanks

Do these loads work for a 1911?

A nice 185g bullet will give you a hint less of recoil but I would stay with the 4.0 grains of Bullseye.
