My wife is wanting to shoot in some local informal 25 yd centerfire competition shoots. Most of the shooters use double action revolvers. It is timed shooting.
She has no problem with factory loads except that it takes longer to get back on target after recoil with factory's.
I haven't started loading light for her yet. Not sure how much power needed to cycle the action.
Does anyone have a starting load? Does anyone shoot lead through these pistols? I load ball and hps now but, no light loads.

Thanks

A very light load is 3.1-3.3 gr of VVN320 or Tightgroup behind a 147gr at about 1.155 OAL. I use Zero JHP's from www.ghostholster.com. $100 per 2K shipped to your door. It is the most common IPSC production load and is very light.
