I patterned some buckshot today. It liked Federal FliteControl the best with the full choke tube.
I was dreading patterning the buckshot in such a light shotgun. The last time I did it was with my 2 3/4" A5 many years ago. It doesn't have a rubber recoil pad, but is heavier and kicks like a mule with buckshot. After 5 shots I was ready to stop.
The recoil wasn't bad at all with this light, gas recoil, Weatherby, using 3" 00BK . I shot 10 rounds and could have shot more.
Clean up is a breeze also.
