Looking for a compromise between my IDPA loads and hunting loads.


I've always used a 20lb spring with both my 10mm 1911's AND Glocks. That being said, I think the 20lb is perfect in a 1911, even for super hot loads, but I think the G20 can take a bit heavier spring with no ill effect due to design differences.

Perfect 10mm setup with....

1911: flat bottomed firing ping stop and 20lb recoil spring
Glock: 22lb recoil spring (since there is no firing ping stop)
10 Ring #1033 - Longslide #1045 - 10mm Loader #1066

Why do I carry a 10mm?
