    I am currently reloading AA hulls with the grey winchester 7/8 oz wads. I was looking for suggestions on an alternative wad. I like to practice with 7/8 oz loads. I have always loaded the winchester grey wads, but they are pricey. Suggestions? Thanks.

    Ditto on the Claybuster replacements. I use several different ones and they all work great.

    I just compared 7/8 oz loads using
    Tittewad 18.0 grains
    Fiocchi primer
    Remington hulls

    With the dr XXL WAD the fit is perfect without the need to change the reloader settings from my normal 1 oz loads.

    The Clear Duster is shorter and leaves a little valley in the crimp.

    The Claybuster wad is also the perfect fit.

    So depending ow what powder you use one of the above will be a perfect fit. The Titewad is denser than Clays or some other powders so it will not be my first choice for loads in the future. I had lots of plastic build up in my choke tubes with Claybusters in the past so my go to wad for 7/8 oz in Remington huLls will be the DRV XXL

    I second the claybusters (1100-12), the ones I use double for 7/8's and 1 ounce. I use AA hulls, W209primer, 16.3 of clays and get about 1200 fps on the chrono. I have shot around 4000 of them in the last 2 years. I really like them for practice also.

    Suggestion: consider using Downrange XL-1 wad for both 7/8 AND 1 oz loads in Remington STS or Nitro (gold) hulls. Check and follow the data in Hodgdon Reloading manual for both types of loads - 7/8 or 1 oz. They load efficiently and perform effectively. The advantage is that you only need to stock 1 type of wad for both loads and the data indicates that less powder is necessary than if you go out and buy 7/8 wads (DR XXL7/8). Works well for me. Regards, Ed

    I've been pleased with the pink Downrange 7/8 oz wad.

    I load it up in AA hulls and a light charge of Red Dot (from the manual) to make about 1200fps. Very nice low pressure load that I use in older side by sides as well as on the trap and skeet fields.

    if you like an eight-petal wad, Claybuster makes the CB-4100 "Lightning" wad. It looks just line a Windjammer but with a longer cushion section.

    Another vote for C.B.s I load STSs Rem. primer 15.5--16gr Promo pink C.B. clone or TGTs 7\8oz. "0" wad pressure & get good crimps also works well with 1oz. Tried D.R. XXL too many soft recoil--odd sounding--plastic build up that I don't get with TGTs or C.B. clones. Just my experience---Ross Puls

    If you can get them, the Federal 12S0 wad is really nice for 7/8 ounce loads.

    cb`s you get 500 for the price of 250.I would not care if I had to chuck a brass bristle brush/rod in a hand drill to clean at that price, and I dont have to.
    If you want to clean those chokes,pull `em and dunk in a cup of lacquer thinner.

    Ditto DanLee.

    16.8gr Promo with the pink DRXXL makes perfect crimps in STS or Gun Clubs. They will break any target as long as your on the bird.

    Not sure what you'll get with AA's... I gave all mine away.

    I also use pink DRXXL with #27 MEC, 700X (16.1gr) and STS for 7/8 loads. Works great for me. Joe
