    Hi Folks,

    Does anyone have any load info on the Remington '12 Gauge "Post-Wad" No.23618 for Plastic Trap Loads' (that's how the case label reads)? .... These are post type spreader wads. The shipping label is dated 1974. Any info is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Stan B.

    They work best in a full choke. The theory is that shot is compressed into the post when going through the choke, and "springs back" upon exit.

    PC made one like this, and they seemed to work when I used them.

    may work for skeet but dont think they will work on trap. Try a couple on paper A rabbit was safe with the box I loaded. They done ok on black birds, killed the ones I didnt shoot at. I used the same load as normal rem wad

    Post wads had some utility when shotguns only had fixed chokes and you needed to open the pattern some. Now you just change the choke.
