    I just bought a case of Remington STS light target loads 12GA 23/4dram and 11/8 oz 1145fps. Are these the same shells as like remington gun clubs recoil wise? Also how many reloads can you get out of the sts shells? thanks John

    You should be able to get 6-10 reloads out of them.

    John, If the gun clubs are the same speed and shot weight, Yes the recoil is the same. I'd say 8 loads are no problem. Some will try for more while others will toss after 5-6. Its up to you how long you want to keep loading them. After 8 loads or so, you have to start really watching the hulls and double finish crimp or look at all hulls before loading to toss out a few. Its up to you and the pressures you load at. If you keep your loads in the 8500 psi to 9000 psi range you'll get more loads out of a hull than if all your loads are above 9500 psi. If you go to low in pressure you'll get unburnt powder (dirty) and/or funny sounding shells. Have fun finding your load. Break-em all Jeff

    Really? More reloads at under 9500 psi. Is this documented or even mentioned in a manual and I missed it in 40 years of reloading?

    I have noticed though that using Clays/ American Select that the hulls stay cleaner and don't get the charcoal ends on them after 4-5 loads as with the so called newly re- introduced cleaner powders that were devolped in the last century and that they seem to last longer now.

    John, You can't buy the same powder Rem. uses for their STS loads. You can buy Winchester super target to do it with the Win. shells though. Most shooters seem to use Red Dot, Clay Dot, Clays, 700X for their go to powders in a l l/8 oz. load at 1145 pfs. Any one of these will work fine for you. Finding the powder you like and tring different loads until you find one that you really like is all part of reloading!!! Have fun and Break-em all. Jeff

    There is an STS LR (Light Recoil) index STS12LR8 which has 1 1/8 oz #8 @1100 fps and a STS Light Target index STS12L8 which is 1 1/8oz #8 @ 1145.

    There is also a STS Managed Recoil index RLSTS1285 which is 7/8oz #8 1/2 @ 1100.

    Maybe the LR8 shells are available on Gunbroker but Remington doesn't list any of them on their web site.

    I reload federal shells and their cheepies, but I have always wondered if on all plastic premium hulls is there any proof that the balistics change (slow down) as the inside of the hulls burn rough from multible reloadings ? I`m aware a person can over think the little details,but could there be more than a little less fps on shells shot at 27 yd targets ?..Perhaps Neil would know..KS-OKIE.

    <blockquote>"...Remington STS Managed recoil at link. Click "Specifications" tab."</blockquote>The link is for MANAGED Recoil loads. Read carefully, please. Chip King also refers to a LIGHT Recoil load with a different part number. THOSE are the ones I said I couldn't find on the Remington web site.

    MK I can't seem to get the website open right now but if you go to the Remington website then STS target ammo page and click on the specifications tab all the various types will be listed going down the list the STS12LR8 is the second one above the STS12L8.

    I bought a box of 20ga low recoil loads for my kid to shoot. Knocked her silly. I tried one and thought it kicked more not less. They had been on the shelf for awhile.7/8 oz of 8's @ 1120fps. I started loading 3/4oz of 8's @ 1080 using Int'l Clays and she can shoot all day.
