    It does seem logical that a lighter bullet would produce less recoil, I was under the same impression for years. To convince yourself otherwise, all you need to do is buy two boxes of bullets in the same caliber with very different weights, and burn them up at the range. You'll feel the difference in your hand.

    A couple of examples: in .40 S&W get 165 and 180. In 9mm, get 115 and 147.

    for the range, take a unused rail attachment, (from old sight or light or laser ) perm attach 1/4 inch thick of flat square lead to it.. then mount it on your 20.. you will love how you can shoot with almost no recoil all day.. uh huh !
