    I ran out of Fed 12S4 wads and all I could find was Clayduster WAA12F114 replacement wads model #CB 1114-12 yellow in color. They wont hold 1 1/4 oz shot. They fill the shell to the top making it impossible. Anybody have any input on this?? I finally found some Winchester and fed's and they are working like normal again. Could these wads be marked wrong??

    AFIK they are a replacement for the Winchester 1 & 1/4 ounce wad, not the Federal.

    Do some measuring. Maybe they were made wrong. They should be Identical to Win AA12114.

    I posted this very same problem, the Yellow 1 1/4 oz wads are actually taller than the original early production Winchester Yellow wads, I asked on here for the wad Mfgrs to make a wad to the dimensions of the Remington SP-12 this would solve a lot of loading problems, and not have to pay $125 for 5,000 Remington SP-12 wads. I have both Yellow Downrange Wad and Early Winchester Yellow wad and they are definitely shorter, the legs of the wad are shorter
    allowing for more shot and powder.
