You will probably have play with spring weights a little to find what works with your loads.

I run a 8lb spring in my 1911, and left the hammer spring alone

10lbs hammer spring seems VERY light. I want to say 15-17 is the norm for those running light springs. I’d be pretty worried about getting constant light strikes at that weight.

9# recoil spring and 15# main/hammer spring works great in mine.  2# trigger.

Hammer spring won’t change the pull more than nominally. As mentioned above, 15-17 seems to be the sweet spot for reliable ignition.  I run the lightest recoil spring that the particular gun will reliably feed with. I’ve found it to vary based on the gun.  You’ll need to do some experimenting.

I’ve never used or heard of anyone using a 10 lb  hammer spring. A 15 is ideal for me. 17 made trigger too stiff. I would go with what Thomas said and test recoil springs and go as light as possible.
