Are reduced recoil 00 shells reliable in auto-loaders?

I was at a local gun show, and the only 00 shells I found were Winchester Ranger reduced recoil. I didn't know how a reduced recoil load would work in an auto-loader so I passed.

Will reduced-recoil 00 shot work fine in an autoloader? If not, what do you recommend for 00 self defense round?

you have to try them out, nothing guaranteed. the win ranger reduced recoil 00 buck and slugs run well with my M1S90.

If yours is a gas-operated auto, it probably will work fine. I have two Remington 11-48 12 ga. autos. Since they are recoil operated, they are a little more sensitive to light loads. Both of them have vent ribs, but one has a Polychoke. The one with the Polychoke has an occasional hiccup with reduced loads, while the other does not. I guess that little extra weight on the barrel makes the difference.

As was said earlier, try them and see. It's the only way to be sure.

Have to try them and see. Likely will work ok - but no guarantees. If for HD....try a lot.

Both my weatherby sa-08 and by beretta al-390 shoot them with no problems. The weatherby will shoot everything I have tried. The beretta will choke only on "extra light" target loads. Regular target loads, no problem.

Ranger Low Recoil 00 and Slug both work fine in my 11-87P.

I still have a hard time trusting it enough for social uses, though.

I agree with the trust statement.

For low recoil, I simply change out the gas piston for high velocity OO and it's still soft on the shoulder.

I just changed out to an 870P and keep the 11-87P for games.

While I've never fired the 11-87P, I've talked with officers that have carried them with positive results.

My 870 is in the safe and I'll stick with the SLP as a bedside companion. :supergrin:

Never had any problems with any of the reduced recoil loads (Federal and Winchester) in my Benelli M-1's.

I use them for practice and duty in my Benelli.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!!!

I hit Cabella's today (missed the local gun show this weekend and didn't find any Winchester Ranger reduced recoil 00) and picked up some Federal Power Shok 00 buck. I'll obviously test it out in my 930 but was curious if this brand/ammo was good/reliable or not for SD.

Sorry, I just don't fully understand all of the aspects of shotguns yet (but I'm trying!).

Thanks!
