    I've been using the CB-4118 (Windjammer clone) wads for a while now and am pretty happy. I also have a lot of Federal hulls (Top Guns). Is anyone out there using this wad in the Fed hull? Fit seems a bit loose, but the CB website shows a lot of loading data. Up to now I've mostly used them in Gun Clubs and AA's.

    DRXL-1 for 1 oz. and 1 1/8 oz. works great in a Top Gun Hull.

    I love WJ's for both 1 and 1 1/8 oz loads in Rem and AA hulls. Didn't care for them in GM's. I do like the WAA12's or Blue Dusters in GM's though.

    Regards,

    When I switch from AA or STS hulls to Federal hulls I use the 1 oz wad to load 11/8 of shot. The Fed hull has a larger capacity than the AA and STS. HMB

    WJ are designed for tapered hulls. Feds are straight hulls.

    Windjammer in a paper Federal hull is the softest shooting load I have shot.

    I load the Federal Top Guns with Windjammer wads exclusively using 19 grs Promo Powder w/Rio Primer. No problems.
