They shoot great out of my Deerslayerll. No problem there. Now my Mossberg 500 is brutal. If I back the powder off 10% is that goin to make much difference in kick? I have no instruments to get accurate measurements but there seems to be a ton of power.
Oh I forgot I am using Accurate #5 powder
I am very pleased with the Lee mold just want to get the recoil down a bit.
thanks for the help
what are you loading? what's the lee mold number? ( I'm assuming 12ga, 3", but as you know, reloading advice should never be given under assumptions )
