- they are pretty costly, compared to all the clones

- they are pretty stiff and sometimes hard(er) to load

- I don't know abt sealing an over-bore as Tin-man said, but I know they crimp well with 1¬ľoz of shot in FGM hulls and the crimp is a lot softer with only 1-1/8oz.

I use the RXP12s and Fig8s. Excellent performance but you do pay a premium for them. I load 1 1/8 oz only. I run them through a Grand which has plenty of room for a stiff wad. Not sure if you would have a problem with a MEC where the clearance is smaller.

They've been around since the RXP target loads came out in the 70's or so. They are a decent wad, but newer designs seem to work as well, if not better, at lower cost. I have loaded thousands of them with good results. I don't load them anymore, since some newer designs seem to work better for me. I still have a partial case of them and many once fired, new loaded shells, and NEW RXP primed hulls, but prefer to waste my time loading the newer stuff. Patterns back then were remarkably good, when compared to some of the stuff we used ten years prior to their debut. I shot my 1st 100 straight with RXP reloads using 700-X and the 29930 RXP wad. I know they worked reasonably well in cold weather when loaded right. Today, cost would be the issue. I don't think there is enough of an advantage, if any, in spending that much for the OEM wad of yesteryear. I also have not done a side by side comparison with them in quite some time, so I can't say if they are the "Magic Bullet" or not. Back then, they didn't seem to work any better than the Winchester Wads did. I do remember comparing about thirty or fourty patterns of each type and not having a clear winner, except my component supplier.

The RXP is a very good patterning 1 1/8 oz. wad IMHO. With Green Dot @ 1250fps.it will perform way out there. I think it is comparable to AA SHCP. It is costly and don't shoot it for practice but when I have to hit a target 40-60 yds. out, I use it with hard 7 1/2's. Loads good with AA and Rem. In my opinion, I believe the DRV wad is comparable for less $$.
