    Pick up a used XDs 45 about 2 months ago
    For a rear good price. Owner had a lot of problems with FTF. Check it out and had to send in for recall work. Long story short,
    Have came down with tendinitis in Rt thumb.
    Need to make a light load to shot until all is better. I have a very good load for my xdm 40 but this will be my first load for 45acp.
    Any help?

    load book that covers 45 acp, find the softest and start step
    cutting the charge.

    I have had good luck with the following:

    4.0 grains Bullseye
    200 grain plated round nose
    1.255 OAL

    and

    4.3 grains Clays (This is a max load, consult your manual for starting charge)
    200 grain plated round nose
    1.255 OAL

    Both of these functioned in my XDs 3.3 when I had it and were lower recoil. While these loads were safe for me, please follow your reloading manual and work up from the bottom.

    I use the same bullseye load as AMDnutt,it is very accurate and soft in both my RO and Glocks.
