Beat the crap out of AA's? Your smoking crack bud.Beat the crap out of AAs for me -- bt-99, A5 new model, citori. I use the low recoil , 1 1/8, 1050 as well as the 1200 fps. No issues.
+1^ Have only shot one box of the 1oz 1050FPS 7.5, which is a small sample size, but no issues and comparable recoil to the Winchester 7/8oz 980FPS loads which cost about $30 a flat more. Ordered several more flats of the Herter's.I have used a flat of the 1050 FPS 7.5 shot as well. No problems for me, but I have understood some have had issues in the past. I plan on buying again. That is purely my experience for what it's worth. I hope all have good luck if you try them as you can't beat the price.
