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

    • Well picked up my BBQ sauce this weekend. Sure is good stuff! 13 bucks for a gallon jug!
    • We should have a holiday every month........   I mean a paid holiday....    lol
    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • Adrian's is good or really any of them on that point is a safe bet.
    • First on CNN: Trump's Cabinet pick invested in company, then introduced a bill to help it   http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/16/politics/tom-price-bill-aiding-company/index.html   Draining the swamp indeed. 
    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
