    Are WT12 wads the same as WAA12 wads?

    According the the Winchester data, they are very similar but not identical. The WT-12 wad is a lower cost item. I have used both over the years and did not notice a difference.

    Econo line from AA. Same mold, different plastic. But an answer to your question is yep but cheaper.

    Look to Blue Dusters for cheaper prices than Westerns, same wad configuration, and they load very, very slick. I am sure you would like them.

    Answer...No. Most of the reloading data allows you to substitute for AA, but not all powders. WT-12 wads and 17 Gr. Red Dot was a max load w/ pressure close 10,500 in a AA hull. They also have more felt recoil (per local club survey). Best always load per the manual.

    Most people who use them do so interchangeably with the AA12. They do, however, produce an abundance of plastic build-up in the barrel.

    Ditto on the plastic fouling - especially in the first part of the choke tube.

    I have heard some reloaders complain that they don't pattern as well in the colder temps, as the WAA12 does. I have used them with no problems, or plastic fouling.

    Worst plastic fouling I ever saw was from whatever wad they use in factory Winchester steel waterfowl loads. What a pain to clean the barrel! For some reason I don't get that problem with the Kent steel loads though.

    They are better than regular AA's! Have used many thousands, use them with exact same loads. The petals on the shot cup don't fold over all the time like they do on AA's. I don't like the thought of some BB's falling outside the shot cup in the reloader. Probabaly none of us can imagine how much that happpens with some wads. BUT, blue dusters are great too!
