Lil advise please?

I've owned Glock's for many year's and outta all my upper end 1911's I still carry my Glock21 on a daily basis, picked up another 20 the other day had one before but I let someone talk me out of it, Had a 6" Lonewolf barrel but honestly I didnt fool with it much back then but now that I'm a seasoned re-loader:-) I had to have another!
Wanna load for 180's XTP's up to some 220 Hardcast (Just in case a BrownBear cruises through Tennessee) What would be the best brand and weight RSA to run in it, Gonna order a KKM 6" Barrel to run as well.

Thanks For your help

The stock RSA should work fine, but I generally use a 20lb spring
with regular shooting of Underwoods hotter ammo. It seems to
keep frame battering at bay.

Stock spring will work just fine, and I recommend trying it stock first. If you start getting very wide deviations in your rounds' velocities it may be because the stock spring is allowing the slide and barrel to unlock too soon, in which case a stronger spring will help. It also helps with frame and slide battering, but I've never heard of someone with a problem due to slide battering...A stronger spring will also keep your brass from getting slung into the next county. I run a 22lb ISMI spring on a lwd guide rod in my g20sf, and it has been perfect, even the weak, cheap, steel-cased tulammo brand .40sw rounds cycle it just fine. Personally, I wish I had bought a 24lb spring, and I recommend you buy a 24lb spring also. A lot of guys will say that it is too heavy, and they may be right, it just depends on your gun...Still, I promise that any 10mm load you run in your gun with a 24lb spring will cycle your slide, (other than maybe hand-loaded ***** fart loads).
