    For shootoffs in oaklys and protections I load 27.7 gr. of longshot- 11/4 of #6-11/4 Win. wad [yellow]- Win. 209 primer- OLD style AA hull. The load would tear up birds and the recoil wasnt that bad. BOB

    I load same components w/30.4 grs of Longshot 1385 fps 10,800

    Use a Rem SP-12 wad same components w/33.0 Grs of Longshot 1440fps 10,400psi

    The AA12114 Yellow wad has higher pressures.

    Use 1 1/8th oz w/versalite wad and 34.9 grs longshot 10.300 1530fps.

    I prefer the 1 1/8th oz load tight pattern in my CG full choke tube.

    NEAL SS according to my Longshot guide your load is extremely high pressures well over 11,800 psi, I could not find any loads w./f
    Federal Paper Shells 28 Grains in Federal Plastic

    28 Grs is 11,500 with your components, I would not shoot that load in my gun.
    w/rem primer and 12S4 Wad 27.9grs is 11,500

    Go to 1 1/8th oz and Winchester Primer, Windjammer wad, 38.5 Grs Longshot is 10,100psi 1585fps like shooting a new AA SuperHandicap on recoil.

    Using much more than 31 gr of LS with 11/8oz leaves holes in the pattern big enough to fit 4 birds in @ 40 yards.

    Thank you all for some great info so far. Keep it coming. I surmise that Dr.Longshot's namesake is not just a coincidence?
