    am wondering if anyone has used the down range xxl wads to load 1 0z estates. I don't seem to be able to get a good seal with 12so wads.

    The XXL is intended for 7/8 oz loads as I recall. The only hope for you is that they will maybe take more shot in the straight wall hulls (Estates). Borrow some and give it a try but I have no experience for you.....Bob Dodd ÅHHH I see there is an XXL, orange, intended for 1 oz. Forgive my ignoramosity.....BD

    The (orange) XXLs do a great job for me in the Estate/TopGun hulls using 1 oz. Promo is my choice of powders, or ClayDot - enough to get ~1200fps. The MEC makes better looking crimps on TopGuns. I really like this recipe a lot, soft shooting, good performance and the hulls are free.

    I normally load Rem. hulls w/17.5 grs Promo, DR-XL-1 (green), and Win. or Fed. primers. Lately a friend has been giving me his Fed. Top Guns. He only shoots new and discards. Any way I have been using the same above listed compoments in them. They just crush targets. Only load once and junk them.
