    I have 2 bags of the old Federal 12C1 wads I loaded them in the Federal Top Gun
    Hull with 20 grs of Red Dot and a few with 19 Grs of Red Dot. I got a good buy on an 8 lb keg of Red Dot thought I would give some a try tonite at Buddy Shoot

    Has anyone used any of the Federal 12C1 wads in anything besides the Paper Federal Shell?

    It's sacrilege to use 12C1's in anything but Federal papers. Nick

    At last count I still have almost 4500 12C1 wads left. Only used them in papers. Never tried them in anything else.

    I used the 12C1 wads in the old double AA hulls with 20 grains of green dot and winchester primer. My second favorite was the 12C1 wads and the old double AA hulls and SR7625 with winchester primer. Butch

    Should anyone have any 12c-1 wads they want to part with I will put them in Fed papers and shoot them in a 1956 model 12 and take the money from the guys in Princeton Mo. they like to shoot long yardage games.

    What a waste of a "vintage" wad. A 12C1 deserves a paper hull. A paper hull has a wonderful smell too. IMHO. K.

    Glad I only loaded 1 box they did not work out, bloopers'

    Now I guess they will sit on the floor beside the loader

    Have quite a few of the two-piece wads and they are only for my paper reloads, whenever I get around to reloading them.
