I went to Downrage Manufacturing and picked up some case of their new economy wads. Kevin states that these wads will load using the Figure 8 specifications. Just in time for the youth trap shooting season (which started today). Kevin and his crew have figured out how to make a quality wad for the Remington hulls, with an economy price. Thanks Kevin.

I will say one thing about Kevin's products, They're as good as factory or better. They don't leave the barrel full of plastic residue either.

Jerry: Did you have them shipped to you or did you pick them up? Usually the shipping costs a lot, due to the size of the package. Thanks. Ed

suggs1,

Smaller companies don't have the overhead that large coorporations do. DownRange probably has a better chief to indian ratio. Lol.

A simple wad design does not have a huge cost for the molds.. Something simple like this could cost $50,000 per set instead of well over $100,000 per set.. Less money comming into a project.. less money needs to be recooped.. Kevin will never compromise the quality..

EE, if you will read the responses, you will see that Jerry "JDSFarms" said that he paid $64.95/5000. Why do you come on swearing and shouting on your first post on a thread? Just read the threads. Makes you look kinda silly.

Having said that, I would like to try some as well.

The only negative I can see with that wad, is the space between the petals. I have used DRA12 white wads exclusively for three years and love them. I hope I never have to switch. DRA12 white wads do not have that space. When inserted into a hull, there is no space between petals of a DRA12. I think that is important if you ever shoot reclaimed shot. Stones the size of shot do make it through the cleaning process. Some stones are very very hard.

Several people have emailed and asked for shipping charges. At over 30+ pounds, a case of wads will cost you 25.63 in shipping charges. I try to not ship to my regular customers if possible since it drives up the cost so much. Omaha

checked the UPS web site. $29.91 residential $27.80 commercial address $46.19 for 2 cases shipped to a commercial address. At this time only 1 1/8 oz size. Kevin may know if DR plan to ever build a 1 oz version of this wad. The cheapest way to get these wads looks like going to a shoot where somebody has them in the trailer. IMHO Omaha

Dave J, powder and Econ wads are ready when you are.
