    I have tried the 6118 in Fed hulls, and found there is too much gas blowby, creating off-sounding loads. A friend used them and velocity was all over the place. They will probably work fine in a tapered hull, if they are not too tall for your loader to process.

    I load misc.eurotrash hulls (including Federal T&F, Estate, TG) almost exclusively and I think you'll be a lot happier with the CB or DR 12S0 and 12S3 knock-offs rather than the CB 61 series.

    I didn't have good results with the CB6100 wads. They were dismal in my cold weather tests, but it may have been the powder/primer combination contributing as well. I would rather use the Federal 12S0 or 12S3 wads or clones in the straight tube hulls.

    I have very good results with Claybuster's Red Eight wad. One ounce loads at 1250 rule with this wad. I use 20 gr Solo 1000, Cheddite, Wolf or Nobel primer. This load does not have cold weather performance issues.
