Lighter springs really do result in less recoil, especially muzzle flip but more frame battering. There is more battering when slide go's back to battery with heavier springs though. If stock is 17-18#, a 22# spring is 20-25% heavier. Plenty for two well-designed pistols with very heavy slides by any standards.
Spot on, I agree. A little increase in spring weight is appropriate but nothing overkill.

I use a 20lb spring for NUCLEAR loads in my 6" Fusion and had a 20-22lb spring in my G20 and they are or were both perfect.

Why do I carry a 10mm?
