Have shot a fair amount of 1145, 1200, and 1235 fps loads for the 16 yard line .

Was thinking of trying some 1100 fps loads.

Any thoughts ?

The 1100 fps 1 1/8 oz. loads are loaded by 2 of the major companies. Somebody's using them!

It'll work fine.

26 grams of shot at 980 fps is what the Winchester Low Noise Low Recoil shells are loaded at, and they break targets with authority.

The old Winchester Super Lite 1-1/8 load was 1125 fps. I still use the load for singles.
They break targets very well.

My first thought is "why?"

My second thought is "probably for reduced recoil."

Before I shot 1 &1/8 ounce @ 1100 fps, I'd shoot 1 ounce a @ 1200 for the same recoil. Which is what I do.

When paying $27 for 100 registered targets, I like the increased payload of 1 1/8 oz.. I don't like to think about how many times I lost by 1 rock.

When I shoot practice, I like 7/8 oz. @ 1140.

This is what I do.

But, it's your money. Bob

With a 1 1/8 oz payload, 1100 fps would do fine at the 16 yard line. I would not think they would function an auto and they might even be too light for some inertia triggers. Load some, try some. That would give you a good idea if they work for you. I don't think the difference in recoil would be that great, but I'm not recoil sensitive to begin with. I run both 1oz and 1 1/8oz loads at around 1150 and they work just fine. In really cold weather, they will lose a little velocity. They still work fine, despite the loss of s bit of velocity.
