Anyone using Trap commander Z21M wads in,STS,Nitro or gun club hulls.??

I have been given a bunch of em and want to load em with 1 1/8 and Int clays powder...

Anyone got info that is published ?/ I can't find any...

I guess these wads are intended for straight wall hulls and I only load Remington hulls so they won't work so well..

anyone else know anything different let me know..

Thanks

Wads are ballistic Products Z21 trap and field commander. Loads are from their manual High Performance Loads for Clays.

Thanks Rufus80,

I guess I will load a box ot two and try em tomorrow.. My regular load (bushing)for Int clays is dropping right on 20 grains,with 1 1/8 oz shot...

I think I will try it like it is and see,, it should be around 1200 FPS don't you think ??

What is your was pressure? This wad is made of very stiff plastic, also separate the petals sometimes they fail to separate. I use a min of 30lbs of pressure on my MEC.

The Gualandi Z21 Trap Commander was is made for a straight wall hull (Federal, Fiocchi, Estate, etc). Do not attempt to load these in a tapered hull!!

The Z21 will make a nice 1 ounce load in a Federal paper hull with Clays powder.

Thanks Big-C That is what I was gona use them for, but they still don't fit in the Nitro hulls with the 20 grs of Int clays and 1 1/8 shot. Hull still a little full and the crimp is bulged. If I set the crimp a little deeper it wrinkles the hull. Even after I have incresed the wad pressure to bout 35 lbs.

thanks Jim, I took all the ones I loaded apart.

Guess I will wait till I get some straight wall hulls.

Thanks all..

This is a Baschieri & Pellagri Z2 wad and is designed for straight wall cases. It might work in a tapered case but results might be IFFY. I love the sister wad the T2 which is probably the best 7/8 oz 12 ga wad going. Just wish they weren't so expensive.
