    I HAVE BEEN USING THE PC BLUES AND THEY WORK GREAT ...I HAVE ALSO USED THE FEDERALS, AND THE REMINGTON. THEY DON'T LOAD OR SHOOT ANY BETTER FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN. THEY ONLY COST MORE. USE THE BLUES AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY...BEST PART THEY DONT COST A LOT AND THEY ARE MADE OF GOOD PLASTIC THAT DON'T FOULE UP THE CHOKES.

    I am loading the Downrange PC 28 (blue) in the old style AA's with IMR SR 7625 and they work great! The PC 28 wad also loads well with Hodgdon Universal Clays in the old style and HS AA hulls.

    I have used the Downrange PC 28's for years. I always had very good success. I was pleased when Downrange took over Pattern Control.

    I just switched to Downrange for my 28 gauge from Dustbusters. I tryed my first box this morning and they load and shoot great. I was using dust busters and they left too much plastic in the barrel, and Nothing but Dust brand gave poor pressure problems. The only problem with Downrange is that they are not available in NC and I have to pay high shipping costs.

    Jeff, I'm not having any problems with my wads I just need to restock and I'm thinking of trying out the downrange one's because there slightly cheaper and I was just wondering how everyone likes them. thanks
