I believe I was told once that the 8 petals open up faster which dosent necessarily open up the pattern as much as u think. It does open up a little but it uniforms the pattern! Ive shot them.for years with great results!

I agree with the scrunching comment. Went back to 4 petal pattern and shoot the same pattern land on the ground at the same distance from me after fired. Loaded some powder got hung up when I tore them apart there was some pedals folded in and shot was in-between the wad and hull on the 8 petal. Just my experience with them. Downrange makes the best wads out there in my opinion. Just didn't see any advantage in the 8 petal.

Pull it, if you want to mix and match your next case of wads I would gladly so that. I am picking up my restocking order next week . Terry.

Put the wads in the dryer for 4 or 5 minutes. The heat relaxes the petals and opens them up so the go on to the tool easily. I have been shooting them for 20 years and they work great. DON'T LEAVE THEM IN THE DRYER OTHERWISE YOU WILL FIND ONE IN YOUR SHORTS.

There's no ballistic difference between 4-petal and 8-petal...just a matter of preference and tradition according to the folks at Downrange Mfg.

I have never had to put DR 8 petal wads in the dryer...ever.

Keller, I put my purple DR 8 petal wads in the dryer. Too much trouble otherwise.

Don't understand why anyone would be upset with wads in the dryer, won't hurt anything.
