    Has anyone else noticed that 12SO wads at 1250fps and above make a strange whistle sound when shot? I’ve shot over 5000 and haven’t got used to it yet. I think I’m going to switch to the XXL wad.

    One of the familiar sounds I remember from the Grand...you'd swear you were hearing it echo off the buildings in Vandalia.

    Just started loading Fed GM hulls, myself & I have noticed "the whistle" too . Usually, I have always used a Remmy hull/ Green duster- DDR XXL pink combo. Just curious, does the CB 2100 rate in quality as the Federal SO wad ? I'm presently using the Downrange XXXL orange, they seem to do a good job. many thanks

    This may be off topic, but I knew a guy whos Lipschitz, so I asked him if his ass whistled and that's how the fight started.

    Disclaimer:
    Please, no offense meant to anyone who'e name happens to be Lipschitz, it was just a joke.

    So with the opposite rotation spiral on the Downrange wad than the OEM's and CB's. Will they whistle a different tune?

    Sorry, I just had to ask!
