    The load with the lowest velocity will give the softest recoil. Factors such as wad weight, crimp depth and powder weight can also have very minor effects on recoil. Powder burning rates will have an indistinguishable effect on recoil.

    Northsider, I use Clay Dot Powder as follows:

    1 oz shot, Clay Buster CB4100 wad, Win 209 Primer in an AA hull, 17.0 grains of Clay Dot
    or
    1 1/8 oz shot, DownRange Fig 8 Wad, Win 209 Primer in an AA hull, 17.4 grains of Clay Dot

    I like them both.....Bruce

    W&W,

    "AA hull, Fed 209A primer, 15grs Red Dot, WinAA 1 1/8 wad, and 1 1/8 hard 8s"

    Ever check the velocity on that load? Bet its working hard to stay above 1050fps

    Shoot ten flats of Nitro Sporting Clays, you'll decide that your old load doesn't kick hardly at all.
