    In going through my old reloading supplies I came across a bag of wads labeled Pacific Verelite. The printing on the bag is red and the label lists the red, blue, and green. The wads in the bag are white/opaque. I am questioning whether they are indeed Pacific Verelite red wads. There are no markings on the wads themselves (the blue wad has Pacific Verelite stamped on the bottom). I have included a photo showing comparisons with other known wads I have. Any help in identifying the wad is appreciated.

    That is the best in the world, no one makes them any better, and world famous Herters wad from the late 60's.

    Looks like the Herters wad to me. Herters did have some good stuff, & I used quite a few of their products, their catalog was a hoot to read because everything they sold was the absolute best & if you didn't use theirs you wouldn't do very well. Ross Puls

    It is a Herters because I have a cardboard box full of them. Which I will sell for a very resonable amount (cheap).

    Looks like it would have the same capacity as an SP-12, maybe even an RP-12.

    Herters--I have and still shoot a lot of them. Made for 3-3/4dram and 1-/14 oz of shot. Good heavy wad, kicks about as hard as any of them.
