I have loaded thousands of these for my wife and youngun.. no recoil at all... the only problem I have found is some of the shots dont sound just exactly right.. they still break the target no problem but have a hollow sound..
Are you looking for a factory load or one that you can reload? 12ga or 20? There are some 12ga 3/4 oz loads liated for Clays. Also some very light loads using Winchester WAALite. There is a 26 Gram superlight load made by Winchester in the 12ga. It's 26gm at 980 fps.
I went out in the snowstorm...cabin fever...and shot about 150 rounds of a 12 gauge 3/4 ounce load that just creamed the targets through a mod choke. Very little recoil. Here is the load as done on my machine. I have not chronographed these yet but they were very soft. I use a MEC 9000 Hydraulic unit. AA hull, Rem 209 primer, Winchester Gray wad, 3/4 ounce shotbar of course, #34 bushing in my machine gives me just under 18 grains of Clays powder. I needed no changes in my loader between this load, my 7/8 ounce load, and my 1 ounce load as I use different components instead of changing the machine. As an aside...I tried STS hulls and they ran through fine but had a slight dish in the center. Still went off just fine in the cold and still hit the targets hard. You could probably back off the powder if you want to but I would watch that with the light shot charge as you might start to get poor ignition. I cannot tell you what pressures are. I just know it felt light without the sharp recoil pulse some "light" factory loads have.
Dave. I will be loading up some 7/8 and 1 oz. loads this week. They are a red dot load. If you want I'll give you a couple boxes to try. Could get them to you at Greene county or MSC. If interested let me know. I had hand and neck surgery in December and will be able to start shooting around March 1. Will be shooting these loads to start with and see if neck etc is ready. See ya, Paul
Me and my nephews have shot many thousands of AA,STS or gun club case,Win.,Rem. or Cheddite primer,16gr. Red Dot,grey AA wad or any copy of it and 7/8 oz of 8 or 8 1/2 shot.
1150 to 1200 FPS. and very lite recoil/hits birds well.
