Rsi wad recipe #88 #3s

Postby Beretta06 » Mon Feb 17, 2014 11:11 pm

I posted this because I saw some posts that had some very chewed up rsi wads. I think due to blow by. These are from my beretta A400. I will pattern. Rsi 84,88and 111 along with 129,132and 133 and post results later this summer,

Yes, that's the way an RSI wad should look. The wad photos that illustrated a burnt wad was the result of a failed gas seal due to over pressure and/or over size bore.

54 yards is more than enough for me most of my shots are in the 25 to 45 yd range. I do step up to #2s for windy days.

They look great to me...........
any thinner/weaker material and you might be getting pin holes with the pellets.

You are good to go.

Like the pro's have said those wads look great coming out of your Beretta , now put some powder behind them !

As mentioned before , 3's are all you need for decoying birds ( Big and Small ) , just adjust your payload / choke for your ability
of shooting and success will be on your side ! :thumbsup:

I agree with the wads looking great and the pellet size....3's are killer pellets size even for honkers. probably the best all around pellet size in steel shot, with 2's being close second. I use the rsi wads all the time in my custom over bored 12 gauge and mossberg 835/935 shotguns without any problems at all.

Why do people take a published load and think they have to "now put some powder behind them"? RSI developed a very low weight/friction wad and put some powder behind them before they published their data. Adding more powder to an RSI load is counter productive in my experiance.
