    I have a few bags of Windjammer yellow WTW 12100 wads. Need recipes for 1oz, 1150 and 1200 fps loads for AA hulls using Nitro 100, Red Dot, and/or 700X. Thanks for any help.

    Does the 1 oz Windjammer wad work well? I have heard people having trouble with the 1 oz version.

    I have used the 1 1/8 version for years and I would like to try shooting 1 oz again. Hasn't there been trouble with the wad tipping or not inserting correctly?

    I load 16.5gr. 700X with the Windjammer 1oz wad. I load it in a Remington hull, Fiocchi primer, and 1oz shot. Excellent load that chrono's right at 1180fps out of my 34" DB-81 barrel that is backbored to .742". This is a great singles load as well as the first shot on doubles. I use the 11/8oz Windjammer wad for all my handicap shooting (27yds). Contrary to Mike's post above, I have found that the original windjammer wads are great long yardage wads. They pattern as well, and often times better, than others I have tested. I am so confident in the wad at long yardage, I use it for my call shot in meat shoots and Annie Oakleys. I load it up with 11/8oz #6 hard shot, and can break the target from way back with no problem. If windjammer made a 11/4oz wad, I would use it for my really long shots. The windjammer is highly under rated as a long yardage handicap wad for no apparant reason. All my testing has shown it to be as good, or better than most, and quite a bit more economical.... Just my experience.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Mike.. I'm using 22gr. Green Dot. Through my Wilkinson barrel, bored .742" and choked to .035" it chrono's right at 1250fps. This is probably the best 27yd. handicap load I have ever built. Excellent patterns, fast, and very light felt recoil for a handicap load.... I have also had good results using 18.5gr. Promo with the windjammer 11/8oz wads, although they are a bit slower at around 1210fps. Both loads are VERY effective at long yardages....Dan
