I load mostly 1oz. Loads in either sts,nitro or AA hulls is there much of a difference between claybuster and down range brand. 1 oz pink and Remington tg 12 1oz.
Silicon? Possibly Reclaimed vs Virgin is the answer that your looking for,My understanding of the issue is the quality of the material used by both companies. Downrange uses a higher silicon content in their wads and as a result you'll have less crud in your barrel and a few more FPS. I use both but prefer DR, CB if DR isn't available.
Was there something you wanted him to do about it?I think this is sort of like asking which is better, 7 1/2 or 8's. It boils down to what you like best and what makes the best reloads for the components and hulls that you use. I go with Claybuster because they are what is available here and also because I had a case of Downrange 28 gauge wads that did not like temperatures below about 32 degrees and after trying to contact Kevin at Downrange with very polite emails and phone calls explaining what I had going on I never heard back from him. I used the wads up during the summer time and that was the last time I purchased Downrange products. I still have some 12 gauge wads that I have as I used to buy lots of his stuff.
Well nebs, I was going to ask if he had any advice for me. I was using 13 grains Unique powder in an HS hull with a Winchester primer, my son with his equipment was loading 13 grains of 20/28, Winchester primer in HS hulls and had the same problem. Switched to Claybuster wads and the problem went away for both of us. I guess that made me pretty certain that the wad was the cause of the problem. They worked fine 8 months of the year.Was there something you wanted him to do about it?
Did you want a refund?
Or did you want him to replace
twith more of the same wad?
Or perhaps you were going to offer him some wad design advice?
Are you certain the problem was the wad?
Could it have been the powder or the primer you were using?
Of course you are correct. I screwed that all up. The Blue Duster is a 1 1/8 oz. wad not a 1 oz. wad. I meant Green Duster. I thought the OP was looking for the 1 oz. DR wads that were closest to the AA12SL and the Rem TGT 12.The downrange wad that replaces the
Remington TGT12, is the DRRT12.
The Blue Duster is closer to the,
The Green Duster is the 1oz version of the Winchester WAA12SL in the Duster Line of wads. The DRA12Pink is Downrange's clone of the Winchester WAA12SL.Of course you are correct.

Similar yes, but not the same. As I mentioned up-thread, the pink DRA12 is made for the AAHS with bulky powders. The Green Duster, on the other hand, is more like the WAA12SL in terms of crush section height.The Green Duster is the 1oz version of the Winchester WAA12SL in the Duster Line of wads. The DRA12Pink is Downrange's clone of the Winchester WAA12SL.
They are very similar.
