SG16S Sporting Sixteen Short wad (5000/bulk cs)
Wads by Gualandi. BPI makes them perform in America.
NEW: By popular demand we've added the Sporting Sixteen Short wad to our stocking line. This wad is dimensionally the same as the original Sporting Sixteen except for the gas seal, which is open and concave. The result of this design difference means that powder fills the gas seal and the Short wad sits about 3mm (about 1/8") lower than the original Sporting Sixteen. This makes the Short model better for bulkier powders, heavier shot charges or larger pellet sizes.
Now you have two different versions of the Sporting Sixteen for your favorite loads. This affordable wad allows you to shoot your sixteen more often.
Identifying feature: Note six pegs that protrude down from the gas seal in a circular design (see image above).
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.)
