    Hi guys/gals.
    Been a long time since I've been on GT.

    So. I have a question. I've got a very short but legal custom coach gun. I need ammo that doesn't kick very much or if at all because I'm testing out some new springs, and I don't want to kill my hands. Any suggestions on what kind of 12 gauge ammunition I could use with very little recoil to test functionality?

    A brand or type?

    I just REALLY don't want to use full loads on this thing too much. Really knuckle killer. My smith, whom is a friend also doesn't want to test it because he doesn't want to kill his fingers/knuckles too....he's doing work for me for free so I can't be too much of a hassle for him...

    Thanks a lot

    Tex

    Try the federal low recoil stuff.

    Winchester AA low recoil target loads will probably work as well as anything. Walmart might have some, or just check anywhere that sells shotgun ammo. They shouldn't be hard to find.
