    Consider them to be WAA12SL wads.

    When the older F1's were in vogue, not so many shotguns were backbored. The SL's do have a deeper cup. If pressures are kept over 9000 psi, you will have no trouble with these older wads.

    If they were stored outdoors, you need to see if the plastic has deteriorated. Try to pull a petal off the wad. If the wad is bad, the petal will tear right off the wad. If so, discard them. If not, load them as described.

    Nowadays, even field guns are backbored. For hunting in wickedly cold weather, I prefer a standard, if not undersized bore. With my reloads, I do not have trouble, but some factory ammo is simply not compatible with backbored arms in inclement weather.

    I shoot 700X in my 1 oz. load with those wads and it works great.
