    Coyote, the factory load is a remington rxp-12, a remington figure 8 is also perfect, stick with oem wads when loading , if other wads were better, they would be used. incinerate em!

    I agree with Bigben. Use the correct factory wad. Why don't you cut one open to see what they use? You would be very surprised to see the wads some manufacturers use,esp in the promo loads.

    Just got a sample of Clear Dusters. I have been using the Green dusters after I found less plastic being left behind than the Clay Busters I had been using for years. I love the Duster Wads.

    I believe factory Gun Clubs use a Remington Power Piston.

    I use Green Dusters.

    The OP asked what we used to load Gun Clubs, not what the factory uses. So some of you are saying the factory wad is the only correct wad??

    I only shoot 1 oz, but went from Claybusters (gray) to Downrange (light green) just out of convenience. Promo powder, re-claimed shot, etc.

    CB 1100-12, win 209, red dot (Mec # 29 bushing-this one drops 16.8 gr) - 1.0 oz 7 1/2 - reload once and toss, as most shooters just toss their new ones after shooting, so there is enough around to pick up at the club.

    Downrange XL-1's for my 1 ounce loads with Clays and Downrange DRRT-12's for my 1-1/8 ounce loads with Titegroup.

    I have used Federal 12S0 wads, WAA12SL wads, WAA12L wads, Green Dusters, and probably a few more I can't recall.

    Claybusters work fine once they're in the shell, but they make a snap-crackle-pop noise going through my reloader, so I don't use them.

    Honestly, there are a lot of wads that will work fine, and I'm not convinced there's that much difference, if any, wad to wad in patterning.

    Pick one and go with it, but be sure to follow the loading tables.

    There. Now, with all those answers you ought to be right back where you started - which is to say...... no answer.
