undefinedQ: Now that I’m 49, my body can’t take the abuse that it once could. Is there a company that makes reduced-recoil loads that I can shoot without having to gulp aspirin afterward?

A: You're in luck: Several companies make reduced-recoil loads. Check out Federal Fusion Lite, Hornady Custom Lite and Remington Managed-Recoil ammunition. If you're looking to practice with big-bore, dangerous-game cartridges and avoid getting unmercifully thumped, try the low-recoil and intermediate-recoil loads from Nyati Inc. They are available in many different calibers from 9.3x74R to .700 NE. Field Editor Bryce M. Towsley just tested the company's .375 H&H and .458 Win. Mag. offerings (pictured above) in the May 2014 print edition of American Hunter and was impressed.
