The common wisdom seems to be that a lengthened forcing cone reduces recoil. Just yesterday a guy out at the range fired a few rounds from my 870 20 gauge, and said it kicked too hard, (!) and that I should get the forcing cone lengthened. Mostly, this guy knows what he's talking about, but can anyone explain to me why the hell a longer forcing cone should reduce recoil?
