    Fellow Reloaders ,

    I have seen the Downrange Figure 8 - 8 petal wad -I loaded a box tonight , but haven't shot them yet . I'm wondering what the difference is between it and the standard Figure 8 wad -other than the amount of petals ? Is there a pattern advantage or is this more of a Skeet shooters wad ?

    Thank you in advance for your time and help .

    I like the Windjammer style, generally they have a little bit lower pressure for the same amount of powder vs a legit Remington Fig8. However I have not found there to be any significant difference in pattern. Your mileage may vary. I use Spolars for 1 1/8oz wads and Windjammer 2's for 1oz wads. They are cheaper than Remingtons so I use them for practice and Rems for tournaments.
