Wad tearing

Postby Blinds70 » Tue Aug 10, 2021 2:23 pm

Hey guys got myself some tss from hawglips and used some of his data to start with. I seem to be having a problem with the csd20 wads tearing pretty bad. Is that common? Should I be worried about pressure? I haven’t had any problems with the Sam wads in another load. Just curious? They seem to pattern well at 40yds I can get some pics up later if that would help?

Upload some pics! The wad should not be tearing. Is this a load that is close to upper limits of pressure?

Pressure is supposed to be 9990 csd20 wad. Recipe says nothing about splitting the wad but I’ve been splitting 4 pedals

I wouldn't worry: the wads are teared but not too badly; seems more the doing of the pellets against the barrel walls.... meaning the wad is doing its job in taking the brunt of the hard pellets.

if it was a pressure problem the base will be melted or blown; however, from the pics it seems alright; also, the signs of overpressure should show on the prime and the brass

cheers,
