91B40, Mine feels a little slugish w/ reduced recoil loads. A small difference exists in the gas ststem in the 1187 Police models in that they are designed for full power loads. Although the reduced power loads cycle my action enough to operate, it does not feel positive enough for HD use. I can use them at the range, however if I was loading up for HD use I would stick with full power rounds. Last time I looked at the Rem. website the 1187P were listed as suitable for reduced power loads. However when looking at the Shotshell section of the site the reduced power loads have a note about possible failures to cycle in selfloading shotguns. I find that the reduction in recoil afforded by the gas system negates the need for reduced recoil loads. Hope this helps.
