20 gauge recoil

This is a discussion on 20 gauge recoil within the Yildiz Shotgun Forum forums, part of the Shotgun Forums by Model category; I thought I read where these guns have a fair amount of recoil but I cannot find the thread now. so how is the recoil?...

Recoil has nothing to do with gauge. It is a math formula that uses gun weight, shot weight and shot fps to determine recoil.

If 'you' think or believe that one model gun recoils more then another, and all of the 3 things I mentioned in my first post are the same that is "perceived recoil" and has more to do with gun fit then the 3 things in the math formula.

Exactly; many folks confuse actual with perceived. Actual is the math equation and perceived is an individual perception based on fit. Sometimes ammo can play a part in the perceived part as well. I find ammo like Winchester Super Speed and Universal to just beat the snot out of me while their AA loads do not. I suspect the different powder being used creates a different recoil pulse that to ME just feels nastier.

Shoot a <6# 20 with some heavy loads and you WILL notice it

When I first started, I wanted the softest shooting gun I could find. I was considering using my 20 ga Beretta o/u. It weighs only 5 1/4 lbs. It beat the heck out of me.

Experienced shooters told me I'd be better off going with a 12 ga semi auto and shooting 1 oz loads. They were right.

However, I have since gone to a 12 ga O/U that weighs 9.5 lbs. It kicks much softer than the 7 to 8 lb semi autos ( I have a Rem 1100, and a Browning Maxus semi autos).

So to me, felt recoil can be best tamed by extra gun weight. If you can find a 20 that is heavy, it won't kick much at all. It's just that most of em are pretty light.

Edit : Meant to add that having the gun fitted will make a big difference in what you feel.
