    Iam looking for some input on wads. Does the hardness of the wad affect the
    patern or the felt recoil. I am also looking for some input if anyone has used the downrange spolar gold for 1oz and with what results. THANKS GENE

    There are so many variables affecting the pattern that it would be extremely difficult to separate out what component was due to the hardness of a wad. The weight of the wad would have an affect on recoil, but not the hardness. I've used an early eight-petal version of the Spolar Gold wad, and found it to be an excellent wad like all Downrange wads are. The petal up the drop tube on my MEC was a minor pain, and slowed my reloading some to ensure it did not happen.
