    Does anybody remember these wads? They say AA handicap and are Waa12XW? I have a few bags of these and either need data or to just sell them to somebody who knows what they are. Jeff

    I well remember those things. Never could tell much difference in them,except it seemed to be somewhat harder hitting to the shoulder. Havent seen any in a lot of years.

    They were for the old black Winchester handicap cases. You need to find a Lyman's 2nd. edition shotshell reloading book. Are they red and same dimensions as a WAA12 with stiffer pedals?

    SR7625 and W473AA were the powders of choice for those cases.

    No.. These are white and look very much like a regular AA. I suspect that shadow is on to something as that makes sense. I have 1000 of them and would like to use them if I can do so safely. Jeff

    Jeff, Those wads have three posts around the circumferance of the wad. They pattern VERY tightly--especially with harder shot so you should use them for annies and long range shooting! Load them just like an original AA wad..

    Curious how you came up with some 30 year old wads? Phil S.

    They were used in the black AA Handicap shell; 1974.

    Yes, they were kicking shells, as the wad had no shock absorbing effect.
