    Supplier was out of WAA 12 wads, so i took the Orange WT 12 wads that only uses 1-1/8 oz. of shot...I checked the Accurate website for info on Solo 1000,..I usually load solo 1000 with the WAA 12 wads, and federal primers,and i cannot find anything on their reloading guide for the above...

    I want to have a load of 1200 FPS...with the Solo 1000,Fed Primers, and the Western WT 12 Orange wad...how much powder would i need for this load...thank in advance....Pepper.....

    The WT-12 is identical to the AA-12 wads.

    They were brought out by Winchester to compete with the Claybuster clone.

    Just less expensive.

    Not good for use in cold weather. They are made of a slightly different plastic that will get somewhat stiffer in the bitter cold.

    The Alliant website shows that when loading with the WT12 higher pressures are generated as opposed to the WAA12. The appear to create about 700 more psi. According to their data, the WT12 produce more fps with less powder than the WAA12. Be aware of the differences.

    I never had a problem in cold weather...I'm talking minus 20 cold...

    I use solo 1000 also, and use Fed. papers with the WT 12..

    My measurements suggest that the orange wad is slightly taller than the white wad.
