loads for 40 to 9mm conversion barrels

Should these be loaded at the hotter range in the receipe book?

No, because you'll get another spring for your new bbl. See that you do. I think even Glock "All hail Glock!" has backed away from using the same springs.

Not with Glocks, they used the same recoil spring for 9mm and .40S&W.

If you do in fact (generations) use the same spring, yes you'll need to load up the ladder until it cycles. At least, I did. HBDC

A few years ago I picked up a Lonewold 9mm conversion barrel for my G35. Cheap old WWB functioned just fine and light reloads as well. If you look at Glocks 9mm and comparable .40 model ie 17/22, 19/23, and 26/27. The recoil spring thats in the 9mm is the same lb. rating in the comparable sized .40. Also the slides are the same size and weight as well.
