Has anyone done any experimentation with spring and bullet weight combinations?

I have a XD40 Tactical which I believe the recoil/muzzle flip is very manageable but out of a desire to tinker I was planning on doing some experiments. I have some 165gr FMJ ammo on order (seems like the only thing available in stores is 180gr) and was planning on ordering a 20, 22, and 24# recoil spring to perform some test to see how far I can reduce the recoil and still get reliable slide action.

Any predictions (or results if you have already done it) on whether 185gr will work with a 24# spring?

Thanks

I use 165gr bullets for practice 90% of the time. I am running a 22# spring with no problems. I have also put 20 Corbon 135 JHP thru it also with no problems.
