12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

I was shooting some 12 gage yesterday in the pump. I was shooting the above (3 in., 2oz). I dont particularly remember if they were magnum or not, but i think 2oz is only available in magnum. Let me tell you, it's the most recoil i've ever felt. No brusing, but i hot a heck of a jaw ache from the first shot, the stock pushed my hand right into my jaw.

Anyone else experiment with these loads? I know that they tear it up pretty good. (i think they were federal turkey loads).

Whats the recoil comparable to in a rifle cartriage? (i know its not an exact comparison because of the recoil velosity difference).



good day,

Re: 12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

The recoil from a pump or single shot shotgun with the shells you mentioned is comparable to a 300 magnum.

Re: 12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

I used the Remington 2oz #4 3" buffered Nitro Mags for turkeys and noy I can't find them any more. Every 2 oz load is in 3 1/2" which kick even harder yet. I saw that Federal has 1 7/8 oz. out but I haven't seen the 2oz any more.

Re: 12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

yea the federal is what i was shooting, bought them last year for turkey and never used them (and believe me i got alot of them). I was wondering what the recoil was comparable to because im looking to get a .338 mag or something along that line (what ever the most popular .338 mag is). I read the recoil to be 54 lbs for a 1 7/8 load and this was a 2oz.

Re: 12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

I know the 3 1/2" 2 oz loads kicked harder than my 300 WBY before I added weight to it. Those things will almost knock you over if you are not ready for the punch.

Re: 12 gage 3 In. 2 oz. loads

Ahhhhhh, the nostalgia of back when I shot Activ Penetrators for turkey loads! Darned right they kick; for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you shot a 2-ounce rifle bullet it would knock you over without some type of recoil reduction system. I'm also guessing you were shooting them off a bench. Everything hurts more off a bench. You'll never notice it when shooting at a turkey.
