    I ordered some Federal, Remington
    & Fiocchi managed recoil 00 Buck.

    I haven't had a chance to shoot any
    of that yet, but I have fired a few
    mixed lot field loads, which prompted
    me to buy the low recoil stuff!

    I hope to get it to a range this week.

    I am looking forward to working with
    this platform.

    JUST to clarify are you talking #4 BUCK SHOT or #4 shot loads?

    On #4 definitely reduced recoil loads.

    I have found that with the 15 pellet #1 Buck...also reduced recoil, with its tight pattern, and the RMR, I can do 100% guaranteed head shots with the Stakeout.

    Look at the "Dram Equivalent" number on your ammo boxes. What does it say for each? The higher number generally means more recoil.

    Size of the buckshot really does not mean anything for recoil, except that you can fit slightly more lead in there with smaller buck. I doubt you're using the same loads for both though, so the Dram Eqv. value is your best estimate to predict recoil.

    #4 buckshot 27 pellets total weight of 1.3 oz. at 1325 fps muzzle velocity

    Same fps. with more weight = more recoil.
    1325 does not sound like low velocity speeds. I see three reasons for #4; it is less dangerous at longer ranges relative to the neighbors, less material penetration, and better pattern density. 00 buck penetrates better and carries further which can be better depending on your application needs.
