    Does anyone make a dedicated 7/8 oz. wad for Federal shells?

    The Federal 12S0 wad is perfect for 7/8oz loads.

    Using enough of a bulky powder is the key to using 7/8 oz in the Fed hull.

    The Gualandi GU1225 (available from Graf's) works well with 17.2 gr. of Clays and 7/8 ounce of shot. The Gualandi wads are designed for straight walled hulls.

    Google Ballistic Products. Get their catalog. They have a multitude of 7/8 oz for the Federal. Also they give ALL the dimentions of the various wads so you can pick exactly what you want. Some are pricey but so is this sport. I have used at least 25,000 of their wads. Am very happy
