    Possibly Kevin @ Downrange? He is the only wad maker that I can think of that posts here.

    Not looking to hi-jack a thread but does anyone know who makes a 7/8 oz. wad for a straight walled hull, specifically Gold Medal? JRM

    If anyone does, it'd be Downrange. Check their website, or PM PerazziBigBore

    JRM, Gualandi makes excellent wads for straight wall hulls. Graf & Sons carries them ( www.grafs.com ). Their GU-1225 fits a Federal GM hull with 7/8 oz shot and Clays powder. The Gualandi wads are less expensive than Federal wads but a bit more than Claybusters but they won't fill your chokes with plastic deposits like the Claybusters do.

    The GU-1222 works with 1 oz and Clays and the GU-1227 makes a nice 3/4 oz load with Clays.
