Actually, I don't know that this has ever been scientifically established. Yes, we all use the Shoulderometer but that's not reliable enough except for internet use.

If there are studies with scientific measurements of the 12 v. 20 gauge recoil I'd certainly like to see them and I bet Federal would too. And so would Remington.
