I seem to recall it's 17 but maybe that was my G20.

Relax the G20 with 19# to 21# spring will be fine for service use, range shooting you might want to bump the # up a couple notches.

IIRC 17# is factory on G 20/29 a bump to 23# might be problem for relibability on most factory ammo.

Or carry a big old N frame Smith.

the G20 is a 17 pounder as stock, i have a 22 in mine now. the wolff site had a 15 pound option....but it lists the same part number for the G36, 29, and 30 so maybe thats the standard for the .45acp

eitherway i have a 22 in my 20 and a 21 on the way for my 29.

Yeaaahh. 12 grains of Blue Dot over a 180 gr bullet is a big load for any 10mm. In any case I run a 22 in my G20.

You can't get enough BD into a case to even strain the cylinder on the 610, and depending on mfg of the HP bullet use you probably could not get bullet to seat deep enough to get 1.280" let alone the 1.260 standard OAL. I think it was some GD 180gr bullets that would not seat below about 1.280" or 1.290" and ended up back down to 11.2 or 11.3 grains of BD to proper seat the bullet and the rounds didn't group, they patterned.

There's worse things to be said about the annoyingly downloaded 10mm ammo.

I thought the comment was apt. Hope I don't get another infraction.

I use Georgia Arms G10E 165gr for practice -- I like the higher velocity rounds -- and I carry DoubleTap.

Actually those are not bad if proper springs are in the gun, try some BD @ 11+ grains with a 180 JHP on top. Well in a light 10" T/C G2 it has a lot of recoil jump, more then my Glocks, S&W's and Colt.

I wonder if you shoot a gun that chambers 10mm.
