Quick, dumb question about reduced-recoil 12GA

Hey all,

I have seen a few of you say that you use reduced-recoil ammunition in your home defense 12GA. To what extent does reduced-recoil ammunition weaken the firepower of the 12GA?

I imagine not enough to be an issue, as the 12GA is immensely powerful in a home defense role, but it's been enough to make me hesitate before buying HD ammo for my 870.
