Looking for a low recoil load , I will be using up my stash of 12 c1 wads and have available powders 700x, Red Dot and Green Dot. Any experienced recommendations ?
would also like it to cycle the 1100. Thanks.

Fed 209A primer , 18.0 gr. Red Dot, 12C1 wad and 1 1/8 oz. hard #7.5 or #8. For years the standard
Fed 209A primer, 19.5 gr. Green Dot. 12C1 wad and 1 1/8 oz. hard #7.7 or #8. May feel just a slight less felt recoil.
I don't like 700x, recoil feels sharper to me. Bill

Interesting you say that, I do experience from time to time powder marks / burns on my glasses when shooting the 1100, not sure if this is typical ? I have always shot my o/u just now playing with 100 in 12ga for skeet.

To use up the 700X..try 17.5gr. with your 12C1 wads lit off with the Federal 209A. When you run out of the 12C1 wads. Throw in a Windjammer or a clone....
