Don't normally notice the recoil until I feel my arm the next day. Anytime we have the huge flocks that winter here lock up and come in, the adrenaline is so high I can't notice.

panther shooter that appears to be lead buckshot per the marking on your boxes seems similar to what would have been lead #4 buck here in usa.
That was some good stuff many many moons ago when it was legal, various buckshot were legal for deer many moons ago when I was shall we say younger also! When it was legal long ago to use lead one could literaly knock them off at a good distance if you were a good wing shot and that stuff you have was a pass thru only needed to hit with one or 2. many many years ago I belly crawled up on a flock on the ground and line up the heads smoked 5 with a 10 ga 3 1/2 mag and lead. got a bloody nose from the recoil but it was worth it. ah the days of lead it killed em dead, enjoy those rounds wish I had some!

Cls.......what a morning. BTW, those two loads have proven to be great in my 3" gun. Here is a foto of what I use on large geese in a 2 3/4 Browning. PS, these are 1 3/8 oz loads (39 grams)....each pellet weighs 6.05 grains....the same as a steel BB..........FW Bill

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
