Just shoot it with the stock spring weight and see if you feel that it is problematic. At that point you might boost spring weights if you find a specific reason, but it is totally not a requirement.
The only time my gun has failed (other than due to worn parts) is when I switched to a 22# spring. The stock spring is 100% with whatever loads I run. I replace it every 3000 rounds.
