    Actually two kinds. They've recently switched back to 12 S-3's from the two piece wad they've been using. My source says the 12 S-3 patterns much better than the older wad. Please do not confuse this wad with the old 12 C-1 which was discontinued years ago. The early 12 C-1's with the clouded plastic seemed to be the best ever!!
