"Light Load" for .45 Colt

Looking for a "recipe" for a "light" .45 Colt load using 200grn or 185grn and unique or Trail Boss.

Would need to make PF for SASS.

Thanks in advance

Check Hodgdon website. They have a nice reloading data center for free. I checked and they have a nice load listed for you with a 200 grain bullet.

Thanx.
I am going to play with their 200's already.
I am looking for a soft recoil and was hoping someone shot 185's maybe.

I would use trail boss as the large 45 colt case and light loads of unique are conducive to double loads. Trail boss was developed to fill larger cases like the 45 colt etc and preclude double loads.
