Was looking at some Fiocchi 7/8oz 1350fps shells. Was curious what the recoil would be comparable to? Generally I shoot 1oz 1200-1250fps. Thanks in advance for your feedback.

I would guess they are pretty close to the same, There is a recoil calculator online somewhere. Plug in the numbers, and it gives you an answer.

Nothing scientific, but I've shot several flats of Fio 7/8 (Shooting Dynamics 1350). To me the felt recoil is much the same as the 1-oz. 1235 Estate shell - generally pretty pleasant.

I purchased a flat to try on closer to midrange Fitasc presentations. Shot through Perazzi/Wilkinson 19 & 25thou. The softer lead @ 1350 hammers them! My initial perception, felt pretty stout. After rolling smoke, could hardly feel them. To me, felt comparable to a 1oz. 1,250-1,280.? Great Load!

I shoot the Fiocchi 7/8oz 1350fps shells for practice and they work great. They hit really hard out of my Krieghoff K80 and my Beretta A400 both using Muller U 2's.

My experience w/ 7'8th at 1350 is IM choke is required to make them into a useful pattern. YMMV

Me , too.

I got some of the 7/8ths @1350 and hated them. I am more a 7/8th at 1160 -- an actual B&P load, which I can no longer find.

I generally shoot M/IM for everything so should be good. I ordered a couple of flats to play with. More curious than anything else since I’ve never shot any 7/8oz shells.

I've shot a few flats of the B&P's which I bought for my wife. She has shot 10 flats over time. I wish I could still get them but since 2020 , I have not found a place they are available.

I shoot a K-80 with Parcour barrels, M & IM. I also shoot a lot of 7/8 oz. in 8 1/2’s @ 1275. That combination absolutely smokes targets out to 35 yards. I don’t leave home without 7/8 oz loads.

I have not tried the B&P; just never saw any locally. My favorite factory 12-ga. 7/8 is/was the Federal 7/8x1200. Soft recoil and great performance, but I have not seen any in at least two years maybe three.
