      Depends on the size of shot that is in it.
      I read somewhere ( I want to say in turkey & turkey hunting) that a average weight 12g. with a 3.5" #5 is 66 ft lbs. Kinda ridiculous considering you are shooting at a 20+ lb bird.

        A 12 gauge shooting 3.5 turkey mags is about like a .458 Win in ft/lbs, but it's very likely that you will think the .458 is much worse.
