Reduced Recoil Buckshot and Semi-Auto Shotguns

How do reduced recoil or "tactical" shotshells perform in semi-auto shotguns - both gas-operated like Remingtons or recoil-operated Benellis and Berettas?

Do they feed and cycle 100% in most cases?

Well, I've put about 150 rounds of Federal Reduced Recoil 00 Buck
through my Benelli M1 Super 90. The gun hadn't been fired too
much when I got it so it took some CLP to get it to run well on the
first range session. The bolt wasn't going back far enough to
pick up the new shell until the bolt was well lubricated. Since
then it has performed well with only light lubrication.

My Vang Comped 11-87 Police shoots them fine without any problems.

11-87P...No Problem

I've used the Federal Reduced Load in an 11-87P with good results. I had no problems, even though Remington recommends that only full power loads be used in their shotguns.

Hope this helps.

I've tried all of the Tac buckshot and slugs that I could get my hands on in both of my 1100s without a problem.

My Benelli runs it just fine.

Anyone worth shooting, is worth shooting twice...
