Well,
I`m a Clay Target shooter, and not really a tactical guy, but I have a couple 1100`s.
I would simply go with Quality "Low Recoil" 2 3/4" loads , like Federal, Remington, Winchester.
Magnums are not necessary. Too much recoil,noise,etc. The ability to get quick follow-up shots is important.
I personally would go with 00 Buckshot , but up to #4 Buck is O.K.(The shot -size debate is a "whole `nother thread."
You can probably get more info over at Shotgun World.
Regards, Pete

Normaly most shells other than target shells. If you want it to cycle light loads, you will have to open up the gas ports.

My 1100 TAC-4 has cycled everything I've put through it so far. Even the cheap Walmart bulk trap loads (pick a brand). It doesn't seem to be too picky.

Maybe they changed things, seems alot of the 3 gun shooters were drilling out the gas ports in order to get them to cycle light loads. Wouldnt be the first time I was wrong...lol

I was expecting some problems with my TAC-4 based on previous experiences with my other two 1100s. When I picked the gun up I disassembled and oiled it and then took it to the range with my Dad and brother. Combined I think we put 750 rounds through it in that one range trip, all assorted bulk trap loads from Walmart, all without issue.

Steel plates were dying like crazy that day! :D

Luckily it wasn't all on my shoulder! With an 8+1 capacity and 18 steel plates on racks (I'm sure you remember the plate racks ;)), it goes pretty quick. Needless to say, much fun was had by all.
