I was wondering if anyone has experience loading a 230 gr lead round nose using WST. I have access to any powder but I want to use WST for this particular round. I only need it accurate to 25 yards and was thinking of using 4.0 gr to start. I guess my goal is to not load 5-10 rounds of 4.0, 4.1, 4.2.... etc and test fire them all. I'll be using a Springfield TRP 1911. Thanks in advance.

I FOUND 4.3 WST TO BE BEST WITH THAT BULLET. JP

Thanks JP, I loaded some up with an OAL of 1.240 and headed to the range. I also loaded 4.0 and 4.1. I'm looking for the softest round that holds tight at 25 yards.
