    I have some Winchester AA "Low Recoil-Low Noise" 12 guage shells that are loaded with 26 Grams of shot.

    I would like to know the ounce equivalent of 26 grams.

    As I have developed arthritis in both shoulders I thought perhaps these might be easier on my shoulder.

    Thanks for your help and Happy New Year!!

    Regards,
    Allen

    You won't notice much of a difference with the AAs.

    You will notice more of a difference (from my experience) with the Remington STS Managed Recoil loads.

    26 grams is a little more than 7/8 of an ounce and a little less than one ounce.

    The Winchester low noise, low recoil loads will surprise you.

    They feel, and sound, like a .410 going off, yet they will absolutely hammer 16 yard targets. The people shooting with you will think you've loaded a box full of bloopers.

    At a published 980 fps muzzle velocity, you may feel that you want to give hard lefts and rights a bit more lead, but the difference is barely noticeable.

    They WILL be easier on your shoulder.

    If you use Google or any search engine and type in grams to ounces or ounces to grams, a you will find a conversion calculator. Then you just put in what you want converted
