Ouch that will leave a mark
« on: September 18, 2020, 08:51:03 AM »
Dang! I thought the auto part of an auto loader helped with recoil...
My new Stoeger will kick your BUTT.
I don't have the steady stock yet and just have the factory stock and recoil pad, and have not put in the recoil reducer that come with the gun. It is just a steel weight that goes in the stock.
I'm shooting the same loads I do in the 870. The reason I put a pistol grip and limbsaver on the 870 was the recoil. You just can't shoot the big goose loads 3" or 3 1/2" all day long, with out it.
I have not weighed the Stoeger but lifting each it does feel lighter a little. I'm not ordering a limb saver yet till I get the other stock as to get the right one. I want to see if I can make the stock a little shorter too, that may make a difference in the size of the LS pad.
I'll try the "drop" shims too I think it may give a more head up feel when shouldering the gun.
I went out and tried it with a mix of shells 3 1/2, 3, 2 3/4, and 2 1/2s.
Light lead 7/8oz to 1 5/8oz coyote loads, and 1 1/4oz steel. All but the 2 1/2- 1/2oz loads cycled and fed great, even all mix in the same loading.
I got an extended ported "crematory" Carlson .690 choke tube and was shooting that. I was shooting a hunk of 11 gauge steel.
It was just a small peace like 8"x 6" but I was hitting it multiple times, 6 or 8 pellets at a time at 50 yards, and my lead F shot coyote loads mostly went all the way through, The BBB steel put a good dimple in it but would not go through. I am happy so far. When I have the stock off I'll see if I have room for a dead mule like I made for the 8mmRM. BY the way the Stoeger kicks WAY harder then the 8 mag did before the Mule. Shocked

Years ago I bought a used Winchester 12GA 101 over and under. My pal that sold it to me had added two piston shock absorbers in the stock and it made a world of difference! I think this is the answer to your heavy recoil, D.

Yes that is an option. The setups I have seen are very $$$$$$$$$.
This is a low-end shotgun.
The pistol grip puts a LOT of the recoil into your hand and arm.
The dead Mule will absorb a lot too. I can take a LOT of recoil but this is a bit over my tolerance.

Those dead weights add a lot of weight and the two hydraulic ones I had in the 101 were not heavy and absolutely absorbed the recoil. I didn't even have to have the shotgun to my shoulder to shoot.
