Has anyone any long term reliability data with the Wolfe extra power recoil springs in their High Standard?  I just picked up a 107 Military and am wondering about whether I can safely use Federal HV Match, Federal Champion and Federal American Eagle (all between 1,200 and 1,240 f/s) without concern for damage once I install one of the heavier springs.  All three of these just about equal CCI standard in accuracy in my other rimfires and the Citation is intended to be my main gun for 22.  Even if the rearward motion is slowed, this doesn't mean the added energy travelling forward might not be damaging the gun.

Don't do it. I have a shooter I change his HS recoil spring for every year. The spring actually compresses quite a bit(shorter). The frame recoil lug on heavily used HS are typically peened from recoil even with SV ammunition. Also the barrel face around the chamber is always battered on HS. I just wouldn't do it. Not even mentioning frames cracking ;(

From shooting many HS for years, I now put 6# Wolff springs in Victors for sure due to the lighter slide.  The other heavier slides seem to cycle ok with either 6# or the standard 5.5#. 
Change the springs regularly.  And NEVER use HV ammo in a CT HS.
