SG16 Sporting Sixteen wad (5000/case)
Wads by Gualandi. BPI makes them perform in America.
Original Sporting Sixteen 16 gauge 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 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.)
