Powders and loads for a 3" 1911

205 2
Does anyone have load suggestions for a 3" barrel 1911 in .45 ACP. The W231 loads I'm using in my 5" gun smoke A LOT out of the 3" gun. I'm looking for a light practice load for a 200 gr LSWC that doesn't make it look like I'm shooting black powder.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
