PT1205 12ga 7/8 oz. lead wad (bulk cs/5500)
The PT1205 is a light capacity 12ga wad with a volume-consuming cushion section. This wad is ideal for light target loads and high velocities. We love this wad as a regular addition to our clay target loads.
You'll find some very useful loads for these wads in our Advantages Manual.
Curmudgeon's Loading Tips:
TYPE: (straight wall hulls = 7/8 to 1 oz.) 12 gauge lead target & small game loads. Stinging fast loads for speedy clay targets. Outstanding for doves, quail, huns and other light upland game.
We use this wad with smaller shot sizes with high velocity loads and pound any short to mid-range clay targets. Dove season was a great success with nickel-plated 9 shot and the PT1205. This is one of the most versatile wads we have EVER loaded in that the compression is very accommodating to different load levels. Cartridge manufacturers love using this wad for this very reason. You will love it too.
The PT1205 loads well at 3/4 and 7/8 ounce lead in both straight-wall (Fiocchi, Cheddite Multi-Hull, Rio, & Federal) shotgun hulls and the taper-wall hulls (WIN WAA-HS & Remington STS) target hulls. Propellants utilized are fast-burn-rate powders, Red Dot, Clays, 700-X, Titewad & Bullseye. Current data charts range from 1200 FPS to 1600 FPS.
