TPS 28ga non-toxic shot wad preslit (100/bag)
The TPS 28ga is a full-length shot column designed specifically for the rigors of modern non-toxic shot, like steel, BPX Devastator, SpheroTungsten, and Hevi-Shot. Finally, a wad that will allow you to load almost any type of non-toxic shot for your modern 28ga shotgun. Designed for magnum field loads, the TPS 28 is the grand result of over two years of development.
Maximum capacities of smaller shot sizes are 5/8 oz. steel shot, 3/4 oz. BPX Devastator, and 1 oz. SpheroTungsten. Capacity will vary greatly according to pellet size and these maximum weights will not necessarily yield the best loads; only testing results will render that decision.
MYLAR: Steel and tungsten shotshell pellets are as hard or harder than a shotgun's bore and barrels. Because these pellets are very hard, they are abrasive and can cause barrel damage if the shot protrudes through the wad slit or otherwise comes into direct contact with bore/barrel. NO wad or component can alter the reality of physics. Hard shotshell pellets can cause damage. As an insurance policy to reduce the chances of barrel damage due to abrasive pellets, Mylar Wraps are always very good idea. They may be added to any of the loads for the TPS 28.

FILLER WADS: When loading tungsten and tungsten alloy shot, the TPS 28 may require filler wads in order to bring the shot up to proper crimping height (i.e., level with the top of the wad). We've found that the 1/2" Fiber Cushion wad in .430" (#FC430) is the best option for this wad. For example, a 7/8-oz. load of STSS-18 Super Max #9 shot will require about 1.5 FC430 fiber wads in the base of the shotcup. These fiber wads are easily split with a hobby knife.
