    I'm not sure that's necessary. Inconvenient too, unless you can find some 185gr or 200gr non +P FMJ ammo. But I would definitely get that spring kit from Wolff and install the heaviest. If the gun cycles reliably, leave it in there. If not, move down to the next one until it does. You want the "Recoil Calibration Pack" @ $18.95, has 20lb./18lb./16lb. springs.

    Thanks again Lamont. I just ordered the spring calibration set from Wolff. Will be nice and convenient to be able to use 230 gr. I really appreciate all the advice.

    If you are are looking for soft shooting ammo, the Winchester White Box 45 in 185 gr is one of the lowest power FMJ 45 on the US market.
    The Federal 185 gr Match ammo may be lighter but it is expensive.

    Excellent call Sir, I had forgot that White box came in any flavor but 230. I'll probably hunt some of that up myself.

    Yeah, thanks PC7. A quick look showed that Cheaper Than Dirt has 50 round boxes at a little over twenty bucks. I'm gonna look for some in bulk.

    @Elvis and Lamont-I've been happy with it. It is reliable and accurate. Further, it is cleaner than American Eagle 45.
    How I got onto it was I searched all the big manufacturers for the lowest power 45 to use in IDPA, since I don't reload.
    Power factor on the Winchester 185 gr is 168, on Federal American Eagle it is 205; so you can see....and feel the difference.

    Did your search turn up a similarly mild hollow point by any chance?

    I didn't look for hollow points, at least not in 45.

    However, the Barnes TAC XPD loads are soft shooting in 9, 40 and 45, even in +P loadings.
    This is due to them using a light all copper bullet.
    Further, they performed excellent in ballistic testing.
