45 230gr ball recoil spring?

Recommended Posts

Running a Sti rangemaster with a 19lb main spring and getting rid of the recoilmaster ,Shooting factory 230gr ball would a 14lb spring be a good place to start?

I guess I'm in the minority here but for 190+ power factor ammo I'd use a 16 lb spring to keep it from beating the crap out of the frame. 14 lb is good for 170-175 though...hope this helps.

I like a 16lb spring in my gun. I use one for 200s at 845-850 and for 230 ball at 750fps.

I have friends that use 12.5 lb and 14 lb springs in their 45s. Try some different weights and see where the gun prints (how well it resets) with your load.

I use a 14 lb recoil spring in my 45 with 170pf loads. Did a lot of research on it here and that is what I came up with.

16 lb is factory on Kimber 45s with 5" barrel.

I run a 14# for 170PF loads. Factory ball at 190+, I would use a 16#.

Tried the 14lb and 15lb no go for some reason the guide rod is binding the slide, I dont know why maby its the flat machined into the barrel for the recoilmaster.
