Hello,
Narrowed down my pheasant load to 1 1/4 oz, STS Hull, Rem primer, using Longshot powder..I noticed a good load using R12L wads, 28.5 grains for 1330 FPS and 9900 PSI...but I saw a few posts online where people didn't like the R12L wads with longshot powder..so does anyone have an opinion on a better wad for this load?

I would think the red winchester wad, a remington RP12 or SP12 wad would work as good or better than anything else that is available.

Here is a possible answer. Early season ditch parrots get my handicap trap load with 7 1/2's and a little later copper 5's. A good handicap 27yd load is deadly on dp's. Shoot what you are already loading with good hard shot.

Yes to the WW Red Wad. We use it in a AA case with 1 3/8 oz ahot in a max 4 dram load. In 4's and 6's, it's akiller shell equivalent to the $25/box Remington Nitro Magnums.

A number of year back I went Pheasant hunting with my Brother near Blue Earth, in Southern Minn.
I picked up a box of Federal 1 1/8 oz, #7 1/2 shot from the local sporting good shop.
I had brought along my VALMET 412-ST...
Bottom line, In less then an hour into the hunt I had my limit.
With in two hours the rest of the party had their limit as well.
Now I must confess I had been on the 27 yard line for about 3 yr. at the time.
My Brother and friends loaded up on Federal 7 1/2's thinking this was the solution too all their Bird hunting problems...lol

I use 1 1/4 oz hard 6's in front of Longshot powder in the last of my Uniwads.
Damn, I wish they still made that wad!

Copper is a waste of money. Get good, hard magnum shot.

bozkm - I use a similar configuration with the Winchester WAA12F114 wad.
