Firing Pin Spring.

In my experience it only helps accuracy a little bit. That means that it will make a good rifle a little better, but won't turn a 3 minute gun into a sub MOA tack driver. A stronger spring reduces lock time, the time it takes from trigger break to primer ignition, therefore the less time the rifle has to "wander" off target.
The downside of replacing a spring on a Mauser is that it makes bolt manipulation harder. A savage action (10,110,16,116) already have a faster lock time than the vaunted Rem700 action, so I wouldn't bother changing the spring.

When the ammo was cheap, 70 rounds for 5 bucks, it was worth getting new springs.
Now, unless you are having problems or building a target rifle, I would not bother.

Now another suggestion is try the David Tubbs lightweight firing pin and geewhiz (means I can't remember what it's called) fp spring, same as std weight but springier, or something. It does make a difference in lock time and doesn't make cycling the bolt uncomfortable. Or you can just buy the spring if all else is well but you have a tired mil spring. Both the whole kit or just the spring only are available at Brownells, Sinclair, or from Tubbs directly.

I was wondering if it was on a 98, if just buying a std 17 lb Wolff replacement wouldn'd have have solved the problem. Didn't you find the bolt lift quite a bit more effort with the 30 lb spring?
