Default Barrel Swap

I have 2 P226's also and I swap the barrels with no problems. I leave the recoil springs in the original slide. I have been told the 40 and 357 sig springs are comparable. I shoot my reloads in both with no problems.

I have a Sig P226 with both the .40S&W and the .357 Sig barrels.
The barrels work fine as do the magazines.
