Fiber Filler Wads - splittable
Fiber filler wads are extremely light and flexible. They are used as a cushion and a
filler because they have the ability to compress a bit during crimping and during firing -
reducing felt recoil. Fiber wads can be easily split with a fingernail for custom load
|Nitro Card Wads - .100" -.135"
Nitro cards, by tradition, and still used as such by black powder shotgunners and
purveyors of European loads, are a seal between the powder and the shot, used in place of,
or in addition to a plastic shotcup. Modern applications use them as well for a
fine-tuning spacer wad inside the shotcup. (Use a 20 gauge inside a 12 gauge cup). Nitro
card wads are constructed of a specilized material selected to withstand the tortures of
slow-burning powders and heavy payloads. Nitro cards available in three-thicknesses.
Tyvek Discs are ideal for magnum steel and Hevi-shot loads. Don't overlook this important
step! Tyvek discs provide pellet necessary containment to the shotcup. Tyvek discs, placed
on the base of the shotcup, perform as an over-cushion wad. Thin as they are, they
minimize the chance of pellets harming the wad, thus giving better patterns and improved
pellet counts. 10 & 12 gauge.
|Clear Overshot Disks
Another BP original - the clear overshot card for roll crimps. You know instantly what is
inside every load. Excellent topcard for spreader wads. Stable platform develops
near-perfect roll crimps -- every time. Use in any overshot card application.
|Cardboard Overshot Cards
Place an overshot card on top of the shot charge just before crimping. Overshot cards
ensure flatter, tighter crimps; more consistent load combustion and pellet containment.
.030" thick. recommended for all high performance loads.
Steel pellets should never be allowed
to contact with the barrel. Besides the benefits of a proper crimp, overshot cards do the
critical work of containing pellets within the shotcup during the firing cycle and during
the journey through your shotgun's barrel.
|Cork Filler Wads
Cork wads are recommended for all magnum loading applications
to protect the base of the shotcup. Cork wads are placed under the shot bringing the load
up to perfect crimping height. Different shot sizes will vary the height of the load. Cork
wads are light, dense and very flexible - desirable for maximum performance. Cork wads can
be stacked to accomodate any height requirements. Use 12 gauge cork wads inside 10 gauge
shotcups and 20 gauge cork wads inside 12 gauge shotcups.
|Tactical Felt Cushion Wads
Tactical felt wads surround and protect projectile(s) 1/4" thick with a .375"
|Felt Cushion Wads
Unsurpassed energy absorption and cushioning make Felt
material ideally suited as a cushion wad. Felt wads have been the first choice for
shotshell loaders for several generations. Nothing has changed. We have used and
recommended felt wads for hunting loads because they can accomodate many different loads
and shot sizes. Use 20 gauge wads in 12 gauge applications and 12
gauge wads in 10 gauge applications.
Felt, Cork and Tyvek wads protect the shotcup base. Magnum-velocity loads focus punishment
upon the base of a shotcup. Placing a basewad underneath the shot payload gives shotcups
an extra measure of protection - as well as giving the shooter some relief from felt
