HV28 Magnum 28 wad (bag/250)
Only top components can deliver high performance from small bore shotguns. For many years, 28 gauge wads were designed only to handle 3/4 ounce loads. Those shooters who wanted to extend their loads to 7/8 or 1 ounce were forced to make do with target-style wads.
The Magnum 28 was developed specifically for field hunters looking to load 7/8 and 1 ounce lead shot loads in the 28 gauge. The cushion section has been reduced so the shotcup could be expanded. The deeper shotcup allows more shot to be contained inside, thus extending the useful range of the 28. This finally allows 28 gauge shooters to load a one/two combination where the first shot is a spreader or mid-range load, followed by a long-distance load.
We recommend high-speed loads using nickel-plated shot. For maximum range and dense pattern at range and killing power, the #6-1/2 or #7 nickel plated shot is optimum. For even larger load capacity, check out the TPS 28 wad, which will hold 450 grains of fine lead shot.
Typical Loads: 7/8 oz lead to 1 oz lead
