Shock buffs don't reduce perceived recoil. I shoot 1911 guns and a 625 revolver. the revolver slaps your hand considerably harder than a 1911 gun. May be time to switch to a .38 revolver.

My 9MM Valkyrie works with my hand loads as well as factory loads. Your hand loads need to be as close as possible to factory loads, if not it ain't the gun's fault.
