That makes three. The DRM TGT-12 and Fig-8 clones are so close you can't tell the difference in performance or pattern. I hate ClayBuster wads and would not use them if you gave them to me for free. There are several others I could say the same about, but not Remington and not DRM. BTW, the DRM Windjammer is an excellent substitution for the Fig-8 if you like 8-petal wads.
I don't mind paying extra for the Remington TGT12S wads. They are great performers and go through my MEC Grabber slick and quiet. The Claybuster TGT12 clone made a loud "snap" and required a lot of force to push it through the wad guide.
I do like the Claybuster 12S0 and 13S3 clones.
I may try the DRM TGT-12 next but I need to use up 5000 of the Remington TGT12S first.
I would be more than happy to use downrange wads if someone in or around the state of Idaho sold them. It seems that everyone who sells them is a long ways from here and the shipping kills the deal. Any suggestions?
ill stay with the remington fig 8, stitched petals make a world of differance when you dont have to fight hitch hikers-folded petals,im paying $17/1000 when i buy a case of 5000(schanz supply) and the 2 extra bucks is worth less headaches,plus thats what remington uses in their premium shells,all my hulls are sts hulls.mark
why do the claybusters SNAP through the wad quide? I found the same issue with my MEC 650 and 9000. I like the stiched wads from remington. They stay put on the wad ram tube! I buy DownRange when they are in stock!
