For years, shooters have wished for and hand-loaders have attempted to create a lower recoil load – usually by simply reducing the amount of gunpowder. The results did create less kick, but at the expense of bullet expansion and on-game performance. For many years, the gap between low recoil and effective hunting performance seemed an insurmountable one. That is, until now.

Managed-Recoil Centerfire Ammunition delivers the trusted Remington® field proven hunting performance out to 200 yards with half the recoil. How? Through a specialized new bullet that was developed specifically to perform at these cartridge’s velocity levels. These bullets are optimized to provide 2x expansion with over 75% weight retention on shots inside of 50 yards and out to 200 yards. The end result is a high performance bullet optimized to provide the on-game results you've come to expect from Remington Ammunition with just half the felt recoil.

Managed-Recoil® Technology has been applied to Remington’s most devastating lead slug. We’ve reduced felt recoil by over 40% to make the BuckHammer® easier on the shooter without sacrificing its on-game performance. The Managed-Recoil BuckHammer 12-gauge slug travels at a fast 1,350 fps at the muzzle and maintains an impressive 1,032 ft-lb. of deer-stopping energy at 100 yards. The 20-gauge, at 1,275 fps., delivers 746 ft.-lb. of energy at 100 yards. Standard BuckHammer and Managed-Recoil BuckHammer slugs are designed for use with fully-rifled barrels or rifled choke tubes.

The best-selling terminal performance and accuracy of our Copper Solid Slugs is now available in Managed-Recoil loads. With 40% less recoil, they’re perfect for anyone who wants outstanding on-game results without the rearward punch. Or, use them to sight-in, then step up to full loads. There’s no finer slug load for young or recoil-sensitive hunters.

Managed-Recoil® Slugger® Rifled Slugs offer remarkably effective performance with 45% less felt recoil than full velocity Sluggers. With effective energy out to 80 yards, these 1-ounce slugs easily handle the majority of shotgun deer hunting ranges. Also check out Managed-Recoil Buckshot; it’s an ideal close-range performer.
