I was talking with a local club pro the other night about loading for the 27 yd line.Old Joe Koposky told me no matter what load you come up with, the very best thing you could do was,take super glue and glue all your wad petals together. My question is where do I find a good deal on super glue Beni

I'd take the super glue and put it on your shoe bottoms. Some find it very difficult to stay put on the 27.:)

I cut a Nitro 27 shell open, they didn't do that to the wad at the factory, maybe they missed the one I cut open ... The club Pro you talked to probably has a connection and buys them that way ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Beni, Remington TGT wads come from the factory stiched together, that it what they use in a Nitro 27. I use that wad and 1 1/16 for singles, I am still trying to decide if I should to break them apart or not. 8703697

Since the wad seperates from the shot once leaving the barrel i can't possibly see how stiched together wads would help. I guess MAYBE if it held together for a split second longer it might help.

I think the stitching is mostly to keep the petals open for easier loading. The stitching is not very "sturdy."

I use the Downrange clone of that wad for my handicap loads.

Timb99, that was mostly humor, but one of my reloading books has a picture of a international trap that doesn't have any slits at all. I think I will break the stiches for the singles. John

Just cut apart one of my RC brand Olympic trap loads, and it has slits with stitching.

I once had some wads with no slits and a concave base wad.. They patterned really well at long ranges.. Many years ago.. we use to invert a Alcan PGS under the shot to create the same effect.. It did produce a hotter core.. as there was more lead there to start with.. We also used the 1 piece mylar wrap AND a slotted plastic wad.. and got similar hot cores.. My best guess is it kept the shot together a little bit longer..

At the end of the joke here.. is there is a spec of truth to it.. Just glue has nothing to do with it.. A piece of tape would work much better..

Tell that ple timer that there is a modern approach. Ballistic Products sells unslit wads. Saves time.

PerazziBigBore, we used overhead projecter plastic to wrap shotcolumn, back in the day. It was a pain!
