    I had an opportunity to try this out with today with Federal reduced recoil 00 and standard Federal 00 as well as Win Lite 12 Ga. 2 3/4 and Remington Slugger 1560 FPS 1 OZ. loads. The reduced recoil stuff had less kick than 20GA. the Slugger felt about like 20GA. The weapon is a synthetic stocked crenalated and braked choked 12 GA. with the new for 2008 Supercell Recoil butt pad. I was impressed as was my Son-In-Law. We were able to keep shots on an area about the size of a pizza cardboard at 65 yards offhand with the weapon's bead sight. I know with practice and various load selection either one of us could do better.

    Sounds good!

    How would you describe the Supercell? Is it pretty squishy?

    It's not real squishy...you can compress it a little with finger pressure but not fully. I had recently shot an older synthetic 11-87 and it had more recoil without the benefit of a Supercell. I suppose a new 11-87 with a Supercell would feel like a .410!

    I feel less recoil now with a used wooden Wingmaster stock and a supercell pad on my 870 than I did with my Knoxx SpecOps stock.
    The indoor range close to me only allows slugs and before I would shoot 30-35 in a lunch hour. The last time I went with my new setup I shot 55-60 slugs and could have kept going except I ran out of ammo and money.
