I have been using my HK45 in limited 10, and am trying to work up some reloads for them. I have tried loading 3.8 and 3.7 grains of clays w a 230 grain Berrys Plated with an OAL of 1.26. Going with those loads I am getting a lot of stovepipes with the ejecting brass (at 4.0 grains of clays the gun works 100%, at 3.9 if I have to shoot at weird angles I start getting stovepipes again). I believe the stock recoil spring at 18lbs is to stout for the reduced power loads. I have checked and cant find any purpose built lighter recoils springs. I am talking with the the people at Wolfe and am going to try and get them the lenght (I can measure that easy enough), Number of coils, the inside and outside diameter of the spring. By any chance does anyone one have these measurements handy for me to compare with the ones I am going to make tonight?
For that matter if anyone has any suggestions for a lighter recoil spring I am willing to look at that too. Thanks.
