    Anyone remember this wad?

    Hints :

    1. Made during the 1970's

    2. Battled with Remington over patent violations (rumored)

    3. Made in USA by private concern that made bathroom space savers

    You got it. IMO, lighest recoiling wad available back then and maybe till today. Mfg. by Action Pdts., Odessa, MO. Engineered by Pete Bellington, owner of Action Pdts. and an avid trapshooter. Pete had a Simmons rib on his guns that looked just like the modern day "short rib".

    Pete was far ahead of his time...God rest his soul!

    Looks like something Downrange should consider manufacturing.

    If some co. is going to bring back a wad, my vote is for a copy of the Federal 12C1. The Federal 12C1 is still by far my favorite wad. Bill Hom
