    What is the difference between the white WAA-12 and the orange WWT-12 wads? They are both listed as 1 1/8oz wads but I assume they are of different heights?

    From what I understand the WT-12 is a clone of the WAA12 but is made with a lesser grade of plastice for economy. Although some powder companies list different recipes for the two, others say it's a direct replacement.

    Lyman 4th ed. "Ballistically interchangeable with WAA12" it is just a cheaper grade plastic.

    Just thinking out of the box. Is it possible that the WWT-12 with cheaper plastic might not be as reusable in reloads and the more expensive plastic WAA12. :)

    Sorry, couldn't resist it.

    Wads are like toilet paper ... you only use them one time!

    I have used the WT12 wads and the DR clone of the WAA12. They are not identical, and require some reloader adjustment between the two to get good crimps. The WT12 fills up the hull more. Mark
