A: That is somewhat of a marketing term. This load would be a good choice for home defense, because, as you said, it is low recoil 00 buckshot.

A: The low recoil Rio Royal 12ga 00 buckshot has a muzzle velocity of 1200fps. The standard Rio Royal 00 buck has a muzzle velocity of 1345fps.

A: Recoil is chiefly a function of projectile weight, projectile velocity and firearm weight. Rio Royal has reduced velocity for these 12ga 00 Buck rounds from 1345fps to 1200fps, while keeping the weight (number of 00 buck pellets) the same, resulting in lower recoil. Firearm weight is, of course, up to you.
