That is also my LS load w/ 175-180gr bullets. Stick w/ the stock springs. Resist the urge to reload beyond book data until you have a really good idea on how to read pressure signs & IMO, a chronograph is a must loading off the books. Any paper you shoot will not know the diff.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
