Reduced recoil loads might also be a good choice if you are recoil sensitive.
It isn't always about being recoil sensitive.
Unless you need the extra range that a full house load provides, I doubt the bad guy will notice the difference between being hit @ 5~10 yds with a reduced recoil load and a regular one. On the other hand, a person's ability to follow up with additional shots are easier (quicker) when using reduced recoil loads. And taking 200 or 300 reduced recoil rounds on a training day (X several days in a row) makes for better quality sessions, IMO.
