SG16 Sporting Sixteen wad (250/bag)
Original Sporting Sixteen 16 gauge wad offers the optimum volume for classic sixteen gauge performance. Of course, we can load more, but 7/8 to 1 oz loads just give us that ideal match between bore diameter and payload height. This affordable wad allows you to shoot your sixteen more often.
Identifying feature: Note the 24 pins that protrude down from the gas seal in a two circular designs around one central pin (see image above). These pins occupy space that would otherwise be filled with propellant, thus lifting the wad above the propellant charge.
Wad design: Tear-away petal design, G-ring crush section, and an exceptional gas seal, creating consistent and clean-burning loads. The Sporting 16 is recommended as a superior pheasant and dove wad.
Curmudgeon's Loading Tip: Use the X-Stream spreader insert for short-range loads for effective 16ga spreader loads. You can easily peel the petals off of the SG16 wad to create a 16ga Brush wad. (See picture of SG16 above right with petals removed and X-Stream stacked on top of remaining wad.)
Loading Data: see The Sixteen Gauge Manual or Advantages

|Exceptional all around wad||1/26/2018|
|I have used this wad for low pressure loads for skeet, clays and dove hunting with exceptional results in my Vintage double guns. When loaded in Fiocchi hulls with Unique powder and i oz. shot. I have experienced consistent, very effective patterns with mild recoil.|

|Versital 16 Wad||10/31/2013|
|I have found this to be a versatile wad when loading a 1 to 1 1/8oz load in a low-base case, such as Federal or compression-formed Winchester or 7/8 to 1 oz in Remington cases. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the flimsiness. I actually go ahead and slit the petals all the way down, but they will come off easily. Good value.|
