Picked up Lyman's 5th Edition Shotshell Reloading Handbook today. I was looking up a load for Remington STS shells using 700x/Win 209 and it calls for a PC Purple Wad. Can't find anything on this wad. I believe it might be discontinued perhaps. I'm sure there is a replacement from Downrange or Claybuster... I'll put a call into them on Monday. In the meantime - anyone know for sure if this is discontinued?

Also, any guidance on other reloading manuals?
Thanks

yes it was discontinued.

there was no official replacement specifically for it that I am aware of

I do not know for sure if it performed close enough to something else to interchange or not.

my understanding was they just did not sell enough to justify continued manufacture of them compared to the other.

I used some back probably 8 years ago or so, and they worked quite nicely.

I was a little disappointed they stopped making them, but have found other wads and recipes for them that I like.

The PC wads were eventually bought out by Downrange and eventually discontinued. They are similar to some other Downrange wads but not exact.
