The 16# standard is a safety threshold, but there wasnt an ideal range. Some springs work for others and some dont. Why ?

We must bear in mind that the recoil spring resists the pressure build-up and brings the slide back in place. The critical point is the balance between spring power and pressure.

Now, we dont wanna risk our lives by poking around just to gauge the powder power. A shooter may try using different spring weights and different ammo brands. Its either, stick to particular brand/type and find the right spring weight, or stick to a spring weight and find the right brand/brands.
