Both are custom 2011. Since springs are cheap. I have on hand 6-14# rates (higher rates for my limited). I then test with different rates to see what that gun/load likes the best.

I’m running a 7lbs  wolf speing in my CK arms. It works great and shoot nice and flat. 

 

Do you use a buffer?

I was running a buffer but recently took it out to give the slide a bit more travel. Also I've seen buffers get chewed up and cause issues during a stage

I currently run a 10, was curious what are the advantages  of lighter vs heavier or vice versa. I’ve tried 9-11 in my custom 9 Major shooting 115gn ho at 1500-1525 FPS and can’t really tell a difference.

The feel of the gun mostly. Get much heavier the more nose dive you get with it
