Looking for recommend reloading recipes for my 9 year old daughter. She currently has a 20 gauge mossberg pump youth model. She's average size kid for her age. Currently she's been shooting 7/8oz loads and hasn't complained about the recoil, a few hours after shooting she complains about her shoulder being sore. We've went over proper form, no bruising or check slap. I realize it will take some time for her to build tolerance up but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone would share a light recoil 20 gauge recipe?
Thanks

Take any 7/8 load and use 3/4 oz instead. Bingo, lighter recoil.

I use 13.5 gr Unique with 7/8 oz. WAG is around 1000 fps and breaks targets just fine at least out to 30 yds. have not tried it out further. Winchester AA makes a low recoil/low noise 20ga 7/8 oz load, advertised at 975 fps, breaks targets just fine also.

Also make sure the gun stock fits her. Most kids need a stick length of around 12”. Long I’ll fitting stocks accentuate recoil.
