Only if you don't shoot much clay target games. Compared to 1 1/4oz Express loads, it is lighter.
But there are a ton of 12ga loads on the market that are much lighter than the 1 1/8 promo loads, which are usually around 1200fps or higher. There are duck loads on the market that produce much the same recoil.
A 1 1/8oz promo load should cycle all 3" actions. If it doesn't, then there is a problem with the gun.

This is true. But we are not talking about a 3.5" gun, we are discussing the OP's 3" FABARM. A properly-designed and -functioning 3" gun should shoot a heavy target/field load.....which would include the 1 1/8oz promo load.
