    Hey All, What are you thoughts on the 12S3 Wad in a AA or Nitro hull. How does it work as far as performance goes. Have a bag I need to load. Thanks, Tim

    You would really be better off loading them in a straight wall Federal hull and get the correct wad for the tapered hulls. I have seen slight bulges around the hull where the base of straight wall wads are inserted into STS/AA hulls and if you've tried to pull one out with needle nosed pliers you'll find they are inserted pretty darned tight. Yes, they probably work (mayber higher pressure??) but it's like putting leaded premium fuel in a 4-cylinder economy car...it'll run on it but why would you do that??

    JMO,

    I use the 12S3 in AA hulls, AA primer 16.5 gr Red Dot or 700X 1 oz shot. This works real well, I got this load from Tom Seitz over 20 years ago.

    This thread is a lot like the mixing the powder thread. A lot of things we concern ourselves with in shotguning just doesn't make much difference.
