    My favorite recipe with what you are looking for is. STS, Nitro, or Gun Club Hull 1 1/8th of shot and 20.4 grains of Green Dot with a cheddite primer and a downrange windjammer clone. Shoots very nicely and very little recoil.

    A load I really like:

    Gun Club, STS, or Nitro Hulls<br>
    1 1/8 oz of GOOD hard shot like Remington (hard shot is the key)<br>
    Winchester 209 primers<br>
    Downrange DRRT12 (clone of the Remington TGT-12s wad)*<br>
    17.1 grains of HODGDON TITEGROUP (not to be confused with Titewad!)<br>

    * The Hodgdon data shows the Remington Figure 8 wad, but the TGT-12s can be substituted.

    I use the following and it has no recoil.

    STS hull
    Fig. 8 wad
    18g. Green Dot
    Cheddite Primer
    #8 shot

    The FPS is only around 1125 but I've found that to be all you need.
