    The factory recoil spring in my P89 is getting old, and I'd like to get a new Wolf Recoil Spring for it. While I'm ordering, I'd also like to get a heavier recoil spring. I am starting to reload for this gun, and would like to be able to load some hotter rounds.

    My question is, which of the springs is best for a hot loaded 9mm round? Wolf offers springs for the P series for both the 9mm and 45 auto. Standard factory rate is 11 lbs, and wolf also offers 12, 13, 14, and 16 lb springs. I feel like the 16 pound would be overkill for the 9mm, but am unsure if 14 is too much for a hotter round.

    Anyone have any experience or advice?

    I know that Ruger pistols are +P rated. So I would think that the standard weight spring would be just fine. I doubt you will be reloading to +P pressure levels :)
