20 guage low recoil waterfowl loads???

4 posts in this topic

I need some help with finding some low recoil waterfowl loads for a 20 Guage. I have a single shot for my son, and I need to reduce the kick aliitle, I dont have money for a pump or auto so He has to use this gun for a while, I want to take him hunting and not scare him off with big kickbacks from gun, I also have a 410 but u half to have a farmers income to afford shells for the thing. Any info would be great. Good luck to all on the opener

I would definitely try to find some 2 3/4" shells. Not sure how much that will matter though. Also a decent option for about $30-$40 is a new limbsaver recoil pad - supposedly it reduces recoil by about half. I don't have personal experience with their product though. Not a totally cheap solution but better than nothing.

Good luck - erik

anything with a 7/8oz of charge should not be to bad. most 2.75" shells would help, or a limbsaver pad as mentioned above.

icecold, same deal with me - grandson is small for 11 and just passed gun satey, going to make his first real trip next weekend. I have a .410 but like you know, the $$ on those is just plain silly... He will shoot some 2.75" in my Dad's old 870 pump. Shouldn't be too bad, bigger issue is the size of the stock for his small size, especailly when adding in a layer of warm clothes. It will be a single shot "pump" for awhile smile

    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.

    • That the snow's coming. My crab apple, and the ground below it, is literally loaded with Robin's gorging themselves. Started yesterday and hasn't stopped...I counted 15 at once before they flit around and land on another branch.
