I have an 1100 12ga I got a 20" remchoke barrel for and added an extended magazine. I was looking at Federal LE buckshot shells online and the reduced recoil ammo (1145fps) is all that seems available.

It is not a question of velocity, but one of pressure at the gas ports. Unless yours has worn gas parts it should work okay with those rounds, but there is only one way to find out. Some rounds will say not recommended for use in semi autos. They say that for a reason.

I have an older 1100 that I shoot sporting with. I recently went thru bypass surgery and needed to lighten up my loads to get back shooting.

My reloaded 7/8 oz loads moving at 1145 FPS. functioned perfectly. I keep the action sleeve covered in Rem oil and I think that helps reliability.

100% correct.

To add to that, sometimes there are shells that just plain won't work. I've owned 1100s that would cycle light 1oz shells but not function with 2 3/4 1 1/8oz Federal Top Guns, they'd short stroke the action.

My current 1187 will cycle my std skeet loads for the o/u just fine (1oz @ 1135fps), but I use Extra Lite so the pressure is toward the higher end for that light of a load.
