I hadn't checked the speed load so I just got done putting the heavy spring back in and yrs, the speed load works perfectly. I'll leave the heavy spring in and speed load it until the sure cycle breaks in. After manually cycling the action a bunch of times it will now single load thru the election port most of the time with just an occasional jam. I think that maybe storing the gun with the action locked open and then some heavy pounding from some magnum shells will take a little out of that spring.
