Same Performance As Fed 28S1 12/31/2023
Since I wasnt able to find any FED 28S1s anywhere I looked into these and found that in a Cheddite hull they have the same load data. Im running a new Ched hull, Ched primer, this wad and 16.4 gr of Longshot to get a 1,300 FPS 3/4 OZ load with lead shot. Its a quail killer for sure! This wad seems to give consistent performance and loads with no machine adjustments when switching from the FED 28S1 to this one. I highly recommend it!

Great wads/Need to be a bigger bag 11/25/2023
I bought these in hopes of reloading my AA hulls in a lighter 5/8oz load. I originally thought I would have to adjust my Mec9000 or trim the hulls, because compared to the Claybuster wads, these are about .25 shorter. These worked just fine with no modifications needed. I now have a go to wad for my new lighter loads. They did great with 13.4gr powder but I ended up dropping the charge to 12.7 and the load was still just right. Crimps are good and performance is what I would expect from BP. I am now crushing clays with a lighter load and saving a little shot along the way. Only downside is they only come in a bag of 250. Hey BP, please start selling these in 500 or more

Good news! They are available bulk in cases of 10,000. Buy in bulk and save!

Essential for Fiocchi, Cheddite, Riefenhauser type hulls 12/30/2010
This is the only wad that will afford you a good flat crimp with conventional 3/4 oz.loads in 2 3/4 hulls such as Ficocci low basewad, Rio, Cheddite, Kent etc. This was the original wad used in Fiocchi/Dionisi factory loads.
