    An older gentleman at my club has 5 boxes of Remington 20 gauge wads, W29942 is the type. I am not familiar with these, as I'm assuming they're an older style. Does anyone have information about these wads, as far as what shells they will work in, and any recipes? Thanks.

    Yes they are the older ones. They are the same as todays RXP 20. There are many good loads for them.

    If they are too old , beware . Could be brittle and you may regret reloading them .

    Like Allen said, there are some slight dimensional differences, but they are, essentially, ballistically identical to an RxP20.

    If they are still soft, you should have no issues.

    Thank all of you for your quick replies. Great graphic, too! I'll be sure to let him know and have him compare the flexibility of the older wads to some new ones. Worst case he can try loading a few and shoot them as the weather gets warmer. As long as they've not been kept in the sun or extreme temperatures, I'd think they'd be okay.
