Since I need to wait for the initial break-in period before cutting my new spring and I don't have an extra cylinder to leave it in for a few weeks, I just made a little setup out of threaded bar, a couple of lock nuts, and a couple of washers. This should simulate leaving the spring in the cylinder except without needing an extra cylinder. You can get this stuff from your local hardware store for under 5 USD (mine was $2.80). I used 5/16 in. threaded bar and I would definitely recommend not going any larger than that. I hope this helps anyone in the same situation as me :tup:

Not related to my previous post, but could a potential problem with over-cutting a spring be that it effectively reduces the cylinder volume? (probably not as much if you are running a wide-bore barrel with a heavy piston)
