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.

Thanks.

Sorry, I don't frequent the shotgun forum. I searched, but clearly my search-fu is weak.

I appreciate the link.

I imagine in such a situation of firing adrenaline could take care of that...
