    Was looking in the claybuster flyer and didn't see any replacement wads for Rem hulls other than the Fig 8 1 1/8oz. Anyone know if there is a 1oz wad available?

    I've also used the CB-4100 Lightning wad with good success.

    There is also the CB1100-12. It's a clone of the Winchester WAA12SL wad and will also work in the Remington hull with 1oz loads. There is a good amount of data published for Remington hulls using that wad.

    Thanks for the replies. The reason I asked was due to some "off sounding" shots using the CB 1100-12 in the Rem hulls with noticeable unburnt Promo. Never had that using WW hulls. Do have to admit that it was cold, but never a problem in the red hull. Also changed primers to Nobel Sport, but again, only a problem in the green hull. Warmer weather solved the "off sounding" shots as did a change back to Fed 209A's. Normal powder burn and sound. Thought by going to a wad designed for the Rem hulls straight wall that it would seal better and not leave unburnt powder.

    I never had the issue with Remington hulls and promo, Green Dot, and Red Dot until the cold weather using Fiocchi 616 primers. Winchester W209 or Federal 209A primers appeared to solve the problem. I tried the genuine Winchester WAA12SL and the Remington TGT12S wads. That change lessened the problem slightly, but the primer change appeared to have eliminated it. Check the data for powder charge recommendations, especially if you are loading hot. If you are loading very light, that may be part of the problem also.
