Re: Question about light shotgun loads
My first suggestion is that you buy a shotshell reloading manual like a Lyman as they also have the process and safety considerations in addition to loads.
I shoot Win 2 3/4" AA's Hulls, Win 209 primer, with 17 gr of Alliant Clay Dot Powder, a WAA12 wad and 1 1/8 Oz of shot. That is my standard skeet load. That load is available on the Alliant web site but I really think a manual is the beginning point. You can reduce recoil by using less lead but that will require a whole new set of components. What do you have for a loader?
If you are looking for just ammo to shoot then look for something that is rated 2 3/4 dram or if you can find it less.
