A little apprehensive, Manager, G.J. Kimbrel decided to stock a few cases of Fiocchi low-recoil and try them out this season. Recommended by a SouthWind customer, G.J. asked a few hunters try them on the clay range and in the woods.

In other reviews, the product proved to be exactly as advertised - low-recoil and low noise; but we all questioned its effectiveness for long range shots in the woods? Our customer feedback: entirely positive!! While there is a difference in the low-recoil and regular shells, our customers are telling us it is worth the switch.

Of course, we are not suggesting that ALL hunters switch to low-recoil, but it is certainly well suited for women. Our November newsletter highlighted the increase in female hunters at SouthWind this season. On a recent hunt, a customer had no issues with long range shots. She also said that she was able to hunt longer because her shoulder did not get tired or sore. Starting out some of the kids with low-recoil is also highly recommended.

Due to the positive feedback of these Fiocchi shells, we are planning to stock some of the other brands - Winchester and Remmington- to see who makes the best product. Click here for a Winchester Low Recoil/Low Noise AA product review by Lewis Creek Shooting School.

Please leave us comments below and let us know about your experience with low-recoil shells.

Some of our readers are probably familiar with low-recoil ammo, though we’ve found that not many have tried it.

How does it work?

Low-recoil loads get back to the basics of ballistics.

They give you a more comfortable shooting experience with less powder

-- or a slow-burning powder that doesn’t kick as hard as faster burning powder.
