I think most all steel loads shoot about the same velocity. The only difference is in the payload. Shot size has no effect on recoil. A lager size shot in steel must be used to get the same effective kill range of lead shot you used to use. Steel shot is much faster than lead and will require less leading on pass shooting. I like to run both the #4 over decoy and #2 on pass shooting ducks. The 3 inch loads in the 1187 are not bad because the Remington is gas operated and so heavy. The 3 1/2 inch loads in the Benelli is not for the weak of heart. John
