    I ran out of Federal wads so I got on Hodgdon's web site to look for other wads to use with Win. 209 primer, 700X, 1-1/8 ounce shot, Federal hull. It shows I can use a WAA12SL wad with 18.5 grains 700X, 9100 pressure-1200fps. So I loaded up a few, does not look like any powder migration, and crimps look good. Anybody else use a 1 ounce Win. wad with 1-1/8 ounce shot in a straight walled hull? Thanks, Wayne

    Yes. No problem. When switching hulls from AAs or Rem STS to Fed Gold Medal hulls I just switch wads to the next smallest shot volume. HMB

    Have loaded 1000's of G.M. with WAASL 1 oz wads with no problems. Only load lite loads 1145 and under (16 yard loads).
