    Looking at the rule book on shell speeds, the rules allow a 1 oz load to go 1325 fps. Looking through all my loading manuals plus what I can find on-line, I can't find any 1 oz loads going over 1250 fps. Has anyone found any loading data for this fast of a shell?? Also, would a 1325 fps 1 oz feel like a 1200 fps 1 1/8 oz load?? Thought I might try some as I can't take the beating of the fast 1 1/8 oz loads.

    Do you realize that you may be creating recoil close to that of a 1 1/8oz load by loading to that speed?

    Don't you gents know speed kills, 1290 fps will crush targets, just try a box of Nitro 27 1 oz loads, they are 1290, you'll get smoke from the 27. The recoil isn't unacceptable either, they seem to kick less than the 1 oz Remington game loads having the same velocity. As far as reducing perceived felt recoil try a slow burning powder like green dot as opposed to a red dot or claydot equivalent velocity load, you won't feel a slap type recoil its more like a push. The good thing is the felt recoil appears to be less than 1 1/8 oz loads. I guess you would have to do the math to determine if there is actually less recoil. imho

    I can tell you first hand that the 28 gram Intl' load will kick the taste out of your mouth!

    I will NOT load any more of them. 1250 fps is great with one ounce of freight.

    BigBore is right. The 1290 foot one ouncer is STIFF. I like 1250. It still kicks about like a light 1 1/8 ouncer.

    I do shoot a 1200 foot 1 1/8 oz load at the back fence. That is the ONLY time I shoot these loads.

    I got over my flinch with sports hypnosis. In addition, I added the positive re enforcement that recoil was NOT a negative thing and would no longer bother me. It doesn't.

    Being math impaired how much less recoil do I have with my 1190 one ounce than with my 1190 11/8 load?

    Some folks who are smarter than I am (which means MOST folks) say double the mass difference, or 25%.

    In any instance, one ounce at under 1200 is a very sweet shooting load.
