Custom Wolff Springs -- how many coils to cut?

    I have two P14 mags I put extended base pads on. One is the Arredondo that gives 17 total, and the other the Dawson Precision for 18 total in the magazine. Both are using the standard Wolff +10% springs designed for the 14 round magazines.

    I shot them this weekend to see if they were reliable in this configuration. The one with the Arredondo pad functioned perfectly. The Dawson padded one however had two rounds come out nose down and the slide compacted the rounds. I have a Wolff spring designed for "Para magazines with custom base pads for additional rounds", but here is my question.

    Have any of you use this and if so, how many coils do I need to cut? The spring has extras, and I know the Dawson pad is very popular... so any help would be appreciated. I could do trial & error, taking off one coil at a time, but I am betting I am not the first to do this.

    Thanks in advance.
