I have a Mossburg 500, and I have been planning on going hunting for a while now. I had put my Mossy in the back of my mind and thought about just purchasing a rifle either a 30.06 or a 30-30, that is until today. The main thing I have been worried about is the recoil from a Buckshot, I am not a recoil junkie so I'd like to reduce that as much as possible. For some reason when I think of a Buckshot I think recoil thats going to throw me about 5 feet back... don't know why. Any help is greatly appreciated.
