I have narrowed my search down to two shotguns, the mossberg 930 and the remington 11-87. I was wondering which one has less recoil. The mossberg has a ported barrel, does that help much with reducing recoil? Any comments will help
I'ld pick witch ever one that I liked best but I would lean towards the Remington. As far as recoil it is all relative. I have never felt the kick of a rifle or shotgun when hunting. Now if you are shooting skeet well, then after the first 100 shots you might start to feel it.
Both will work well for your application. I like the remmies but I have mossbergs as well and the tang safety is nice especially if you are a lefty. As far as recoil, the moss. tends to recoil more than the remmy but with the ports(they do help) the mossy will probably be slightly less.
It depends what you want to use it for. The 11-87 is a nice semi but it has its limits. It does not function well with light skeet loads at all. However, if you are looking for a hunting shotgun, it is very reliable with the heavy field and waterfowl loads. The mossberg has the same issue as well.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
