Soft shooting 9mm load for the wife's LCR recommendations

I'd like to get the better half shooting with my LCR9mm by loading a soft shooting round. I've got some 124 Laser Cast that I believe I could get into the 800 fps range that should be powder puff regarding recoil. The lead should clearly ID the soft rounds. I'm thinking Tite Group or W231. Your thoughts?

I like TiteGroup for my short barrel handguns under 3". I seem to get clean burning, accurate loads.

zaster will become famous soon enough
I'm in the process of trying to find the most comfortable and accurate load for my 9 mm since my wife is
starting to warm up to pistols.
CFE Pistol, SR4756 and Ramshot Silhouette are on the top of my list so far

Got any RedDot or Promo ? Try 3.2g of either with that 124g lead (or plated) bullet.

That should get you around 850fps, and cycle the slide. And you won't have to chase brass, it should all just pile up directly to your right.
