Default Recoil reduction.

What is the best way to reduce recoil out of a Beretta 12ga.slug gun with fully rifled barrel. Will porting the barrel help any? I know it made a big difference on my 44 mag. But from what i have read everything says it makes little difference in a shotgun. Is this true with slugs also or is it only for bird shot? Everything i have read doesnt say anything about slugs.

Limbsaver pad, of course it won't reduce the recoil, but it will reduce felt recoil. I have a couple of shotguns that came ported and cannot tell a difference from non-ported.

I've shot a ported and non-ported slug barrels but i can't really comment because my ported barrel is on a Mossberg 500 and the non-ported was a 5 pound Deer Tracker II so of course i'm not going to feel as much kick on the heavier Mossberg. Porting of the barrel reduces muzzle jump allowing you to get back on the target quicker and also makes the gun MUCH louder It is awesome to hear that boom echo through the woods. I also beleive for a pretty penny they can put like nitrogen or something like that into the stock and drastically reduces recoil, a friend of mine has one like that and its really nice, but it cost a pretty penny. If its cold where you gun hunt deer the recoil pad along with the layers of clothing your wearing will be enough. I've shot mine with all my clothes on and it didn't really bother me.

The problem i had was anticipating the recoil and flinching. Once you can get over this its no big deal. Alot of guys only need 1 shot to kill the deer so 1 shot isn't gonna hurt that bad. When i went to the range my shoulder started to hurt after shot 7 and got progressively more painful until shot 12-13 when my shoulder hurt so bad it hurt to just place the gun to my shoulder.

If it is for practices get a shooters pad that straps to your shoulder or shooying vest that has the removalable pads. I even think Limbsaver is starting to make them in vests now.
