    for a 1 1/8oz load @ 1145 fps, which will offer less perceived recoil? I've used clays extensivly in a 1100, but i'm using an over/under now, so any little benefit i can get is appeciated.

    International Clays for 1 1/8 certainly gives me less perceived recoil. I load STS hulls, Claybuster WAA12 (white) clone, Rem 209P primer, and a #30 mec bushing which drops about 18.8 gr. of International. It seems to me that the recoil sensation is less than the 1 oz. loads I use with 17 gr. of Clays using a Win 209 primer. Try International. Ed

    Actual recoil will be less with Clays, if you the same shell, primer, and wad, because you use less Clays than Int'l to get 1145 f/s with a 1 1/8 oz load.

    Perceived recoil is dependent on the perceiver.

    No difference in any load that has the same charge weight and velocity. Physics does not lie. Jeff

    my lieing physics book mentions acceleration. add this concept to using a slower powder. ?

    I've actually done both samples and couldn't really come to a conclusion that one was softer than the other. The Int'l Clays will, in theory, move the ejecta down the barrel over a longer period of time and that's the argument for "would feel like less recoil."....breakemall....Bob Dodd

    No flame or argument here but If you really want to make a comparison, it would have to be with the same primer, same hull, same shot weight, same wad, same gun and barrel, and then load to an equal velocity. All the other mixing of apples and oranges (#7 1/2 oranges vs #8 apples?) will certainly confuse the issue. Switching primers, wads, 1180 vs 1200 or 1235 fps, yada yada can't be too valid with the personal "feeling" of felt recoil. The way I compared was as above and I really couldn't mark one or the other as significantly different...just HMO....Bob Dodd
