I am looking for suggestions for lighter loads for my Colt govt 45 due to health issues. I just shoot for fun so accuracy is not that important. I have reloaded some and now at using Bullseye powder with 185gr lead SWC. My recoil spring is 18.5 lb and if I go below 15 gr powder I get ejection problems. I will buy a lighter spring to help with this but need some questions answered. Is there a limit to how low I can go on the powder?
Is there a better powder for light loads?
Suggested spring weight?
Am I trying to make a silk purse out of a sows ear?
