there are multiple choices, anybody know what's the 'right' spring for full power defensive loads?

para ...youll have to get the ammo you want and will stick with ...get all the springs you can .....lb wise ...try them all ascending in poundage ..go till it wont cycle fully ..drop 2-3 lbs ..from there ....i run a 22lbs sprng in the .45 ..sure do open and close fast ....he he ...
another trick for the non comped crowd is to do this tomake major .....and then you can change out spring to shoot steel ....downsize the loads to minumum ...less recoil on weapon ...on the 45 i drop just below min load and put in the 6 lb spring ...(before comp)..made it really controllable for the poppers ....no loss of cyclic time ...
ONE ROUND AT A TIME WHEN DOING THIS ...CHECK TUBE EACH TIME TO MAKE SURE YOU DIDNT LODGE A BULLET IN THE BORE ....BE CAREFULL ...!!!!

shot the new toy today, I got 1 failure to go into battery on several magazines.. I think the recoil spring is pooped..

well my test for any wepon is that you can run the bolt/slide face rite up to the base of the ammo in a fully loaded mag ...let it touch and release ..if it doesnt crisply shove one in ...it needs work ..
......maybe your ammo isnt hot enough too ..may just be barely making the length of travel and too much drag to allow it to pop her in .....in other words maybe a lighter spring ...do the above test ..if it wont do a full mag cycled manually id bump up the load for shits and gigs ....

factory winchester JHP, runs like a raped ape in my Smith 39 FWIW..
compared to the 22lb spring in my commander, the HP seems very light..
I ordered a set of Wolff springs, they have a pack that comes with 17, 18.5, 20 and 22.. one of those should fit the bill...
