Buffer spring strength

Are AR 15 buffer springs weaker than AR 10 buffer springs? As in force required to compress the spring.
All the best,
Bill

These guys say buffers and their springs are NOT compatible. Both the bolt carrier length and the calibre difference matter.

Absolutely. Spring ratings for AR-15 springs are much lower than AR-10 spring ratings.
