    HAS ANY ONE EVER TRIED THESE WADS. I SEEN SOME AT A LOCAL GUNSHOP AND THEY WERE CHEAP. I THOUGHT OF GIVING THEM A TRY, BUT I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF THERE WORTH A TRY.

    ALSO WHAT DO YOU USE FOR POWDER AND HOW MUCH THERE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE ANY INFO FOR RELOADING THIS WAD,

    ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT

    Yes I have. No I didn't think they had a sizeable difference on opening up the pattern. Really all one has to do for similar effects is cut the petals on standard wads. Ballistic Products has the reloading info for them however.

    If your wanting something to open your patterns up then try the toad stool design inserts. They work.

    What is the intended use for these wads - open up the pattern for what distance?

    I have used them before and they worked okay but believe you need to insert a mylar wrap - too much trouble for me.

    Why not use your regular load and shoot the threads or use a cylinder choke?

    I have used several variations of the BPI brush wad. They work. They don't hurt anything. Patterns are nice and true to choke. The central core was somewhat less dense. I got my reloading info from BPI's reloading manual- Performance for Clays, 6th edition.

    If I were of a mind to try this again (I'm not), I'd do as Pheasant Master suggests and cut the petals from my standard wad.
