    Flip.... I use the Versalite for long yardage hdcp. and for call shots in meat shoots. Downrange Mfg. is still making these wads. I, personally, like 22.5gr Green Dot in a Federal Paper hull, Federal 209a primer, Versalite wad, and 500gr #7 shot for my call shots, and use 22gr Green Dot and 492gr of #71/2 for hdcps. The great thing the Versalites has going for them is you can use them in both straight walled and tapered walled hulls. Excellent wad. They are not, however, a good choice for singles or doubles. They tend to hold a tighter pattern than others... Just my experience... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Ditto on what Trap2 said.

    Rem., AA or Fed. hulls with GD and Fed primer - it will reach way on out there. I don't like them @ 30-35 yds. It's a long-range wad IMHO. Believe you will like the performance - good luck with it.

    They have a very deep powder cup and seal slow burning powders in straight wall hulls well. At least that's the rumor. I wouldn't actually know. Really.
