Sounds like youre doing the right thing. Keep up the good work,

I read somewhere that Platz were a fan of doing timed sets, adding :30 instead of weight until he was at around 10 minutes long sets. I read.

you'd probably enjoy reading about "sarcoplasmic " vs "myofibrillar" hypertrophy.

IA had a good post on this. If I find it I'll link it but basically if you can go from 135x20 to 405x20 I'm pretty sure you're going to grow

Actually it depends on what you want to accomplish, my opinion you need a variety for size I like the 4-6 for power and size range and for muscle 6-12, and for the burn pump I like 40 reps it keeps the muscle guessing and when you do not use any vitamin "A" you have to get creative to build muscle. its like getting the best of all worlds so I suggest on basic compound movements like bench pressing, deadlifting, squatting 4-6 reps, and for muscle building movements like dumbbell pressing, front squatting, and bent-over rowing use the 6-12 reps, and for the burn use isolation exercise like cable cross overs, side laterals, cable curls, leg presses, straight arm pull downs for 40 reps, just make sure you its a weight that you can get 15 reps and go for 40 and stay at that weight until get it with some ease. Just remember in bodybuilding it not about how much weight you can lift so the ego goes into the back pocket and make reps you goals and once you met them the increase the weight.
Keep Pumping

I think it depends on what your doing. For isolation exercises I find higher reps works better. If I'm doing something like cable flys or leg extensions I do between 10-15 reps.

Strive for progression with any rep range and you will get bigger and stronger.
