I just sent you an e-mail...
I would be careful about certain wads for T steel loads. I know from use, that the Ranger Plus will easily handle T steel shot, as we have shot probably 3,000 of these without having any of the steel pellets contact and scratch the bore...
Other than the Ranger Plus, CLBC and BP-12 Tuff wads, I cannot comment on any other wads on the market, as these are the only three wads we have used with T steel...
A duck hunt would be absolutely awesome! Maybe we can do something like that this next duck season. I look forward to it....

You really need to get your facts straight before you start slinging more of what you have been
Straight off of BP's website
The BP12-Tuff was discontinued due to the Multi-Metal capabilities of the BP12. The BP12 is molded our tungsten and steel resistant LL material, which will protect barrels like the former BP12-Tuff. Therefore, the modern BP12 wad may be used in any BP12-Tuff load data.
I use Herco in my 12ga Buckshot loads. It fits the 12ga 2 3/4" 1 1/8oz -1 1/4oz buck shot roll Ok. 1175-1250fps at 10,000psi range. I do not have a lot of Herco so never thought to use it for steel.BT Justice wrote:baltz526 wrote:New hulls can lower pressure.
Very true, but Herco is a bit on the touchy side to say the least.
Herco is what I at least call a very narrow range powder. In some applications it works very, very well but it has a very limited range of applications that it does well in. Herco makes some really accurate pistol loads in applications like 9mm and 38 super and it makes some really good heavier lead loads. Problem being Herco goes overpressure very fast in some application's and doesn't have enough energy to be any better than other powders, it's basically an older powder that gets outpaced by more modern high energy powders. I quite honestly believe that pistol shooters are keeping Herco popular because compared to more modern powders that are out there now it's been totally overshadowed for shotgun use, my own thoughts.
It's not really suited to steel shot applications or should I say as suited as other more modern powders or even some single based powders like SR4756 which is quite a bit more forging than Herco is.
