    Spread them out in a single layer and put them somewhere hot for a while. All plastic has "memory" and should regain their original shape.

    I do the same as Grunt, old pillowcase, low heat for a few minutes. Windjammers are famous for this stuff cause the plastic of the petals are thin. IMPORTANT, dump out, spread out, and let cool. If you let them cool in the pillowcase, or in a pile, they are still messed up.

    I use the dryer tactic with original Windjammer wads but I find that I have to use them the same day because even if I let them cool spread out on a screen, in a day or 2 the petals all start to curve in again so the shot starts looking like a barrel.

    Somewhere I read that if you put fabric softener in with them, you reduce felt recoil. At least, they will smell better.

    PS The dryer really does work

    using the fabric softener will also help keep the skeeters away too

    Clay Busters are the always that way. I quit using them long ago. When you buy new they should work without any additional work. Use Rem stiched or Down Range. Both seem to have straght petels.
