    Remington figure 8 is my favorite. I have shot a few WT 12 wads, they worked fine.

    DRXL 1 1/8 for singles and caps. DRXXL 7/8 for first shot on doubles, and DRXL-1 for 1oz practice loads. Unless they quit making the XL series I don't ever see myself switching to anything else.

    I like the Downrange DRA12 in 1oz for my loads. It produces a very nice pattern in my Beretta Unsingle with a Muller U3 choke.

    I load any AA/"clone" wad that I can buy in bulk, cheap... AA, WT12, Blue Duster or Claybuster... last deal I stumbled upon were some bulk Blue Dusters in the case... someone was cleaning house - $8/1000 +/-

    I'm more particular on my primers and powder...

    My favorite wad was the 12C1. Loved shooting the old Federal Papers with the 12C1 in them , then reloading them with 18 gr. of Red Dot & the 12C1. Was always cool when the little red piece separated and went flying off in some other direction. :) Can't afford 'em these days. :-(

    I settled on the DR Econo wad, after trying CBs and others. It works just as well for me as any other, and is cheap, although not cheaply made.
