The Spolars are a fine wad and work great in the Spolar machine. Dixie, had Kevin at Downrange make quite a number of samples until they found the one that fit their need. If you are going to get a great loader, why not buy the wads that work best with their machine.
Kevin has had a few requests for a similar wad for a NON Spolar machine. It, like the Spolar wads, uses a premium plastic that costs a little bit more to make. They are made in limited production and I bought the last 14 bags of them last time I was there. They are the slickest wad I have seen. I don't have a picture of them on the web site yet. Will post if I get one.
This is the story I have heard. Dixie or Kevin will come along and tell us if I left anything out.
OK JM - the gauntlet has been been thrown down [or slapped across the face] - a 16 yard challenge shoot this Saturday at Oak Tree with or without the wind!! Oooo! I get a three bird handicap because of my elderly age and good looks. And if you were back at a manley man's yardage [instead of 21] we could do that too. I am trying to get in physical shape by doing 100 gun ups [easier than push ups] a week... no sense over doing it. See you at Oak Tree?? Fred
I am using Spolar Wads in STS and Nitro shells in a new Spolar reloader. The shot string is patterning well and I seem to be getting harder hits and more smokeballs. I agree with an earlier thread - if you have a Spolar reloader, why not use the wad which was designed to optimize its use?
OK, You guys were having so much fun, I went and snapped a picture of one of Downrange's Premium wads (DRV-12-P) to put on my web site. Notice it is a 4 petal wad where the Spolar Gold wad is 8 petals. They are in limited supply in Omaha and Topeka KS. I would still use the Spolar wads IF I had one of them pretty Spolar machines! IMHO
