<Edited because I had 2 new posts and mixed them up =)>

I know there are reduced recoil buckshot rounds, but I have yet to see reduced recoil slugs. Anybody have a good source?

Also, I have only shot #7 target load. How does buckshot compare recoil wise?

Try the Ammo Man, Federal Tactical reduced-recoil rounds in both slug and #00 buck... $149/case delivered...

I use Remington reduced recoil slugs... available from Sportsman's Warehouse, if you have one near you.

Federal, Remington, and Winchester all offer them.

Remington will probably call it "managed recoil"

Federal will call it low recoil or tactical

Winchester sells them through its Ranger line...I'm not sure if they have a reduced slug in their "civilian" type ammo

(If I have to move outside, I will do my best to grab the M4, myself)

Oh I'll use my AR or XD for HD. The shotgun rounds I just want for fun at the range and 3-gun matches.
