There is a little bit of give--it's not like hitting off of a dried out hard packed fairway. But I could take a swing with the intent of digging as much sand out as possible and not get much out. I normally use my 60 degree Vokey spin milled with 8 degrees of bounce.

Basic bunker shot....you want the bounce having a downward blow with the leading edge up.
Firm bunker.....you want the heel having a downward blow with the leading edge AND the toe up.
The force used doesn't change, you just create a different tool to use.

I use this to great success, open the face and setup like you would your normal shot, but now put your weight on your front foot and come in to the ball just a TAD steeper and quicker than normal. My shot usually gets pretty good spin and check. The must important thing though is the weight forward.
Hope it helps,
