The TGT wad is a bit taller than the Fig8 wad,it all depends what the powder MFG. calls for in the loading. If you get a chance,pick up a box of the Remington nitro 27 shells and see what wad Remington uses for 1+1/8 loading.

The Nitro 27 shells can use the TGT wad because they use a very dense powder but a bulky powder like Green Dot would need the Figure 8 wad designed for 1 1/8 oz loads.

With the Remington Premier and STS, these 2 wads are interchangeable. The the original TGT12/ Fig8 wad was made in the early 90's (prior to the shorter Fig8 wad) when the Rem. Premier shell was introduced (subsequent to the Blue Magics) the full circled TGT12/ Fig8 wad was sold. I bought about 30k at $9.00/1,000 once the shorter wad (Fig8) was introduced; the price was special because Remington introduced the Fig8 shorter (3/4 circled) wad as a possible replacement (when actually the original wad was renamed TGT12 1 oz. wad). On all of the bags and labels on the cases the manufacturer (Remington) indicated 1 1/8 oz. and also used for 1 oz. I talked to a Remington factory rep. at the Grand (Vandalia - God's Special Place) and he said that the original long wads were popular with the Winchester AA lovers but sometimes the wads would cause the crimps to open up after storage (I've also had this to happen) so they made the wad shorter and then catalogued the original wad as a 1 oz. Keep in mind the original full circled TGT12/Fig8 wad was an 1 1/8oz. wad. The loading data for the Remington hulls originally indicated that load data was the same. BT100dc
