    Remington has their low recoil (LR) 2 1/2 dram eq., which is an ounce and 1/8 at a published 1100 fps. I like it. All the 100's and most of the 99's I've ever posted were with this load or my reloaded equivilant of it.

    Also, Winchester has their Feather lite load which is 26 grams of lead at a published velocity of 960 fps. Breaks targets OK but you do need to adjust your timing.

    Personally I would not go below 1100fps. From a full choke that puts it above the speed of sound so you don't have pattern tightening issues.

    I load everything to go 1150fps, but I have shot a lot of 1125pfs stuff. There just isn't much of a difference between 1125 and 1150 for singles except a little less recoil ans possibly a touch higher POI.

    I don't go much lower than 1150 for anything. I like 1200 or so for everything. No problems with function in my 1100 and no need to learn to compensate for slower shells. I'm also not extremely recoil shy. I use one ounce loads at 1200 for 16s, mostly for economy and see no realistic difference in my scores.
