    I have been shooting Blue downrange wads and the other day I decided to take several shells apart. These are STS hulls, I then noticed alot of powder migration up into the mid section of the wad. Has anybody addressed this problem? Has Downrange address this problem? Does anybody but me seen this as a problem? I have never experienced this with other wads to this extent. This has to effect the shell.

    The powder in the mid section is caused by static electricity, causing powder to migrate up the hull. Rub a hull with your fingers, and then drop a load of powder. Depending on what powder you use, you will notice many flakes sticking to the inside walls, well up the hull. No wad will 'scrape' all of the flakes off of the wall.

    When it's dry, handle hulls the least amount you can.
