I get less recoil out of my low end loads in 44 spc & 45 acp . Allowed for fast follow up shots as I was shooting against the timer .
I just found a lighter load for my 41mag , which I almost never shoot due to recoil & my bad wrists . But hopefully the load will work out to about 800 FPS instead of 1300FPS & allow me more fun time with the 41 mag .
Check out some of the guys that shoot competitively . They reduce their loads , put in lowered poundage recoil spring & lighten up there guns . But when they shoot , almost no barrel rise . But that takes tuning .

And also remember that the factory uses some powders that they do not offer to the public to get the speeds with less pressure than we can obtain ourselves.
Just a few thoughts...................

I use to shoot the same ones for practice. Not anymore.
The body does not like the max loads anymore. So I use mild for pratice but still practice and sight in with the max loads enough to be able to hunt with them. Getting old is not for sissys.

Zero for hunting loads but for plinking , I likes the lighter loads .
Just found one for my 41 mag that runs an avg of 740FPS . Now I'll have to take it out more often .
