    I ordered a 15lb spring from WLD. I'm planning to use it in my G19 with light to mild 115gr and 124gr hand loads. Will shooting factory ammo with the lighter spring beat my frame and slide?

    Watch the ejection pattern of your fired brass. If it is rolling off your knuckles, drop the spring weight. If it is flying out 10 feet or more, add more weight. Ideally you want the brass to land about 4 feet away.
    Springs are cheap! Feel free to experiment.
