    Gun fit is a big contributor, however, buy a PFS now and never look back.

    Check the load, the 2 3/4 dram is a great idea, 1 oz with that even better. Then try one of those mercury recoil reducers. I did that in one of my trap guns and oh la la, a sweet shooter! I would let anyone shoot that gun, I have even had a 100 pound woman shoot it and she liked it! It has a gentle push, you know it is a gun but no slap to your shoulder. Gun fit will take care of the face but you did not mention that so i take it gun fit is right. While a PFS has been mentioned, they just look too mechanical for me, check out the Prosoft from Phil Simms or Walnutmaker on this site. I have shot them, they are amazing.

    I had the same problem with a 682 E sporting clays gun. Got a PFS & solved the problem. I'm sure there are other solutions but that's the one that worked for me. John

    I have a bump buster from Ken Rucker on my 682 gold, it makes a big difference. 1 ounce loads are plenty for skeet. Good Luck

    Mercury reducer in stock A Plus idea. Probably less than $40.00, put it in yourself. 1 oz. is plenty for skeet, 7/8 oz. even better.

    I have a bump buster too and it does an amazing job. I do stock work and install the bump buster as part of my services. Let me know if I can help.

    Order a "Beretta Recoil Reduction System" from Beretta USA. They are a larger version of the Deal Mule reducer and work the same way. I think Berettas are soft-shooters - my son and I both have 687 Silver Pigeon II trap combos and they have the lowest felt recoil of any break-open gun either of us have owned. But arthritis has made me very sensitive to recoil IN my shoulder and I'm always looking for ways to reduce it.

    I saw one of those reducers in the service department at Beretta USA when I visited there 18 months ago. They are intended for their semi-auto target shotguns but can be fitted into a 68x stock with very little modification. I wrote an article on recoil reducers and the photos below were a part of that piece. Of the recoil reduction devices shown - and I own them all and used all of them - the Dead Mule and Beretta devices were the most effective.

    For skeet 12 gage all you need is 7/8 ounce load and a LM choke on the bottom and a IC on top if you load one-at-a-time. The targets are right in front of your face - you can almost reach out and touch them. A 12 gage 7/8 load kicks less than a 20 gage equivalent load too - don't ask me why - more of a push than a kick. Some of the best registered Skeet shooters in the world shoot 20 gage in the 12 gage gun event and they rule the game. I used to shoot 20 gage in the 12 bore gun and would generally run a 100 about every other tournament.

    Lovethesport,

    How much too short is it? If you've bumped youer nose a time or two with your thumb, then you may be soft shouldering the gun instead of mounting it firmly. It sounds as if a good fitting session is in order to get everything straightened out.

    I generally use a 1225fps 7/8oz load of 8 1/2's for my 12ga skeet duties. This is like shooting a 28ga as far as recoil.

    SK and SK is plenty of choke for skeet, reguardless of the payload amount.

    My 682X (these have dense wood) has 2 recoil reducers in the stock and I intalled a Nelson Adjustable system. For Trap I shoot either Rem Lite target loades at the 16 and the lite handicap loads for handicap. Also winchester makes a Super Target brand shell that has 1145 FPS that I use for the 16.

    In doubles I shoot 1oz loades followed by a handicap load.

    I have a 34" Over Single for handicap and a 29 3/4" O/U for doubles.

    For skeet I have a 30 3/4 U/O Sporting Barrel with Kolar AAA tubes.
