    I am considering installing a 20 lb. spring in my Glock 20 that has a 6" barrel because the heavy spring is supposed to work better for the hot ammo. from Double Tap and others. Anyone have any experience with heavier springs?

    Also I am switching to lead free ammo because it has higher velocity and I have learned that it is almost impossible to clean all the lead fragments out of game shot with lead bullets; plus lead is highly toxic to some scavenger birds, condors, eagles, etc.

    Backroad Rider,

    First off welcome to GT. I use a 22# spring and works great for every load from mild, to wild!:supergrin:

    Lastly, the lead scare is more about bird shot, and being eaten by birds and such. Little to worry about them eating a 200 grain bullet. Would like to add, when hunting deer, or hog sized game, generally the bullet passes through, so again, no real concerns.
