    I have finally found a lead bullet I like to shoot with my Springer Loaded. 200 grain IDP #4-XD by Missouri Bullet. Hardly any smoke, low recoil, accurate, and easy to clean-up after. What more can I ask for! The recipe I used was 4.3 g Bullseye with a OAL of 1.205. Gonna start mass producing this one for the range.:) Thx Missouri Bullet for making a great bullet. I definately will be buying more to experiment with.

    4.3 is my 'soft-shooter' load. accurate and easy on the hand so 200 or so rounds makes for a enjoyable afternoon.
    mixed in of course with a variety of other items;)

    4.5 almost feels like a factory load and makes major
    4.7 approaches a SD round, and
    4.9 sweeps pins clear off of the table:eek:

    +1 for Missouri bullets from me also re IDPA nite games;
    almost no smoke from their lube to fog up my seeing.

    Thx for those other recipes you posted Claude. One question though, is your OAL you use 1.205 also?

    dsv--i load as long as will function in my mags; that being 1.260

    this feeds in all mine & friends 1911's and pt145
    my friend JG is happy if i bring him 4.7's to feed his SMG's
    dillon makes a lot of my family & friends happy:D:D

    i crono as i work up loads and the V of a 4.7 seems high relative
    to the perceived recoil. i attribute this to 1.260 vs 1.160 or your 1.205
