What spring weight are you using with the DW?

Have you shot factory rounds through it?

I'm using a 24lb recoil spring. Shot some (ten to fifteen) DT factory through it with one hiccup, a nose dive into the chamber hood, like my handoads. I think another trip to the range with a stock 20lb (21Carrier suggestion) recoil spring for another test. I'll take my camera a try and get some pictures of any feed issues....
