    I'm switching to reloading STS hulls. Which Remington wad should I use for 1 1/8 oz loads? RXP, Fig 8??

    Thanks - I'll get some Fig 8s.

    And Oz (names normally begin with a capital letter), I'll assume that you're just playing on your Dad's computer before school, trying to act like an adult.

    Ahhh, Chauncy - looks like you'll be late for school too, and you need the grammar class.

    PS - since both wads are listed in my manual, I was asking which one guys had had better results with.

    They both seemed the same to me as far as performance goes.

    Ditto what halfmile said. I found I could load the figure 8 wad with a 1 ounce load also. I just needed to adjust the crimp and they worked perfect. Ed

    Forget the high priced Remington wads and look in to the DownRange Mfg. wads. They make the slickest, easiest loading wads on the market. They leave little residue and pattern better than any other. I personally use the Versalites for my handicaps and the XL Jammers on 16s. Great wad, great service and support from the factory if needed.

    Blue Dusters for 1-1/8 and Green Dusters for 1oz.

    Like Longhorn said, forget Remington wads and Remington primers for that and go to the clones and your get the same performance and pay 20 bucks less per 5000. May get you some more shot! If you go to Rio or Fiocchi primers you'll save over 50 bucks per 5000 in some places. Promo powder too as long as I am talking saving money.

    Good Luck

    I use Claybuster wads CB 1118-12 for 1 1/8 oz and CB 1100-12 for 1 oz loads $6.99 for 500 To change size of load all I do is change the shot bushing. Perfect crimp every time. Works the same on STS, Nitro 27 or Gun Club hulls.
