After 2 shoulder surgeries (1 on each shoulder from years of shooting shotgun) and getting tired of cleaning my Semi-auto gas-operated shotgun.....I tried out a few boxes of this ammo in my Semi and to my surprise the felt recoil was reduced by about a third and also to my surprise not only did I shoot about the same but actually a little better (I THINK because of the speed but I am an amateur so I am not sure).............SO SO SO......I thought I would give it a try in a borrowed O/U and to my surprise I had the same results only the recoil reduction was down by a little less....say around 20%.......so give it a try.....with Fiocchi quality you might be pleasantly surprised.,,,,Good luck... -
The powder is clean burning, the primers always go bang and the wads and shot are premium stuff. I pattern all of my shotguns with 48 inch square paper and i can tell you with Briley chokes in my Berettas, these loads are even and tight. Recoil is nearly zip compared to the Target Win Value Pack shotgun shells a lot of guys use. I can shoot all day and have no problems. The Fiocchi cases are fantastic to reload too. Brass heads and good plastic. The newest Fiocchis have 6 fold crimps and the older Fiocchis had 8 fold crimps. Doesn\'t seem to make any difference to me. - R. D.
