Depends on which powder you use. If you use H4895 you can do a perfectly safe reduced recoil load per the powder manufactures instructions. I've done well over 300 reduced recoil loads for my 7yo daughter and all of them have shot without a trace of over pressure.
Because of this, she has learned to love shooting with me and is now able to shoot a full load. The commercials loads were to hot for her and made her flinch. Well, because of reduced recoil load she was able to overcome that and loves shooting now. Since the beginning, I've now been able to up the charge to a start load. It was just in the beginning when I was trying to get her into it.
With all that said, reduced recoil loads DO have their place in the world of reloading.
