Mod recoil spring for light loads

I have a new (<500 rounds) Baretta 92FS to be used for bullseye shoots. I am working on a custom light target load. Best to date is 3.0gr Unique with a 125gr cone bullet behind a CCI cap. It produces a tight group, but will not cycle next round.

My question is should I: (1) cut some loops off the recoil spring to allow this load to cycle, (2) order a lighter spring, (3) fire more rounds through the gun before mod, or (4) shoot higher loads?
