Interesting, I've got a light O/U in 12 ga and don't find it at all objectionable, but it may also be that unlike the rifle, I'm shooting from a standing position.

It occurs to me that the recoil pads on all my guns are as old as they are, which in some cases is pre-1964....maybe a fresher pad would make 'em a bit more friendly.

Loading down is something I'm pondering eventually - supplies are in such short supply that getting data and materials to match is a challenge - and as a greenhorn at reloading, I'm not prepared to develop my own loads for obvious reasons.
