Just as a reference point, jacketed 185-grain SWCs over 4.2 grains of Bullseye was the classic load for for imitating commercial match ammo. A good number of bull's-eye competitors used loads of 3.8 grains under cast 200-grain cast SWCs, like the H&G #68, and some went down as far as 3.2 grains. That requires a light recoil spring in a 1911 and other semi-autos, but there's no issue with bullets failing to go down the barrel.
