    Just wondering if others are finding that Remington TGT125 Green wads leave more plastic buildup in their choke tubes than others? I shot about 150 rounds and had a good amount of plastic buildup in the last 1/2 inch of my choke tube. Can't seem to find any other buildup anywhere else. I clean my gun after every use so its not an issue but think I might want to try some wads that don't leave as much buildup. I'm using a STS hull, 18.4 grains of Clays, TGT125 wad, 1 1/8th of 7.5's. Thanks for your time.

    Try the Downrange clone of that wad.

    DR-RT12

    BTW, its a TGT-12S (the S is for stitched petals)

    I always have good results with the Rem tgt12s. The Down Range clone is as good maybe even better. All wads leave plastic in my chokes, the worst was the yellow winchester target wad. Not really a problem, just do a little cleaning now and then.

    i've been noticing some pretty excessive buildup w/ TGT12s as well, as much or more so than claybusters. Will be looking for an alternative at the end of the year, and downrange is the probable substitute...
