Kimber 10mm spring

Looking for suggestions on what lb spring to run in camp guard 10mm for warmer/hot loads.

Factory reports 18.5 lbs currently in weapon.Running good with lite/medium loads.Any other interals to change?

Primlanary research 20-24 recoil.Mainspring 25lbs.EGW firing pin stop.
10mm.Because I can see a .45 bullet in flight.

I would use this WC FW Spring Kit for a 10mm(24lb).

What 10 mm ammo foot-pounds of muzzle energy do you think represents a hot load? 600? 700? Conversely, is a medium load in the 500's and is a light load below 500 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle? The Armscor ammo I recently shot is like 407 Ft-Lbs at the muzzle and some Sig 10mm ammo was 625 Ft-Lbs. There's a pretty wide range. I was going to get 20, 22, and 24 lbs of the cheaper regular springs from Wilson Combat and maybe a Shock Buff just to tinker with. I may get the WC flat spring JC45 recommends instead. It doesn't seem that everyone agrees with a Shock Buff but they are cheap, and I may just experiment with one a little.
