    I bought a thousand CB 1118 wads to try. I'm loading Red Dot and 1-1/8 oz shot in the two piece AA hull. They seem to work well, no excessive plastic build up and good crimps. I've had some problems with Downrange XL wads creeping up in the hull between the seating operation and crimping which makes a mess. The Claybusters don't seem to do this, maybe because of the taper on the powder cup. Has anyone had any bad experiences with these? Anyone have similar experience with the DR wads?
    Thanks

    These CB's kick ass for me in both Rem and AA hulls.

    I've used/still use them for years now. I'm only reloading them in high numbers in the old style AA's. The newer taper is suppose to help out in the newer style AA's. I have limited experience in reloading the new style (less than 1000 hulls) but everything went o.k..

    I've had so-so experience with them. Compared to DR Versalite, no comparison IMHO.

    I have been using them for years. I shoot 1oz loads. The only other wad I will use when I can get them is the Buster wads.
