Packing 20g B&P steel 24 wads

Postby Alfie73 » Wed Nov 25, 2020 11:59 am

Hi all,

Advice needed please.

I’m using 28g cork packers to pack my b&p 24 wads 20g wads. I have until now as test loads sanded or cut down the cork packers slightly as they seem to be expanding the wad slightly when I push them in making the wad tight in the hull.

Now that I’m confident in the load I’m going to load a large batch of loads but it would take 15 - 20 mins per load if I sand down the packers to fit.

I’m reluctant to use all felt packers under the shot as I believe it can effect the pressure? So was wondering whether to try .410 corks with a thin 28g felt on the top of them instead of the 28s?

Any help or ideas appreciated.

Thanks

Alfie
