My wife doesn't like my chili. Or my stew. Or this or that. she is sort of spoiled and whiny. It makes me mad as a wet hen when she takes a bite and frowns because the chicken is a bit overdone. Sometimes I remind her that she can take it or leave it, that there are tacos only a mile away.

Your wife should just toughen up and take the recoil rather than ask you to create ill performing loads to fit her desires.

Just my thoughts.

Life is good!!

I loaded some 4.5gr, 5.0gr, and 5.5gr rounds, and also brought some factory ammo for my wife to shoot earlier.
After some full-load 230gr factory rounds she 'saw the light', and realized she didn't have to have bunny farts to shoot .45s after all.
Now she kinda LIKES the 185gr bullets over 5.5gr of powder!
To make things even better,these 5.5gr loads run my 1911 with a stock 16# spring. (100%)
Now I am loading the same ammo for both my .45s, and LIFE IS GOOD!

uncle.45 looks like the wife just gave you a Merry Xmas and a Happier Next Year!
Congrats.

My wife is thinking of a second gun and is considering a 45acp. Most likely a Springfield XD Mod2 like the 9mm she already has.
