Shotgun SD load

I recall you may have recommended #1 buck as an effective SG load. Are you aware of a "low recoil" make for this load?

Thanks!

Y'know, I'm NOT aware of a low recoil/"tactical" #1 load, and that's a damn shame. I'm not the only person in the field who thinks it would be a good thing to have.

best,
Mas

I patterned a Winchester #1 buck against the TAP 00 buck from 20 feet with my 12 gauge last weekend. I thought the 00 buck was too "aggressive" at home defense distances; this round blew a hole in the target backstop 2-3 inches across. However, the #1 buck blew a pattern 6-8 inches across with it's 16 pellets. I felt the #1 buck pattern would be reasonably adequate to stop the offender, while the 00 buck pattern looked like a slug passed through the target.

Any thought as to whom a consumer could register a suggestion to manufacture a low recoil #1 buck?

Thanks again for your leadership in your field.

Write letters to Federal, Remington, and Winchester. It's been my experience that they actually listen to consumers.

best,
