The magnum blends are no joke they are one bad to the bone shell. As for the reduced recoil ones idk about that. But i have patterned idk how many different loads and these were by far the best. They cover up a target at 60 yards with my choke, i wouldnt shoot that far but they can defiantly do it no problem. The number 7's really do open up as soon as they leave the barrel which means no more shooting baseballs at turkeys within 15 yds.
I shoot the 3 inch shells. The reason they made the reduced recoil shell is because these shells punch back like nobody's business. To me it isnt a problem, its not like your duck hunting but they do kick harder than any shell i have shot. Well worth the money, if you haven't tried them, buy some
The 7's really open up as soon as they leave the barrel huh??? At 40 yards I straight up CHALLENGE you to get a better, more dense and even pattern than this one with the Mag Blends.
Don't get me wrong either. I shot the Mag Blends and have a stock of about 75 rounds of the 3" and 3.5" each and have totally wrecked some tukeys with them, but the "logic" of thinking that each separate pellet will pattern and perform differently like E.M. claims is simply ludicrous, false and imo irresponsible. The number of progressively larger pellets, of which NOBODY knows the ratio that's loaded into each shell, will pattern exponentially thinner and thinner every yard past 40 yards, until you might sure have some 5's in the load that'll have the energy to kill at 75 yards as E.M. claims, but you certainly will not have enough of them to RELIABLY do the job.
