Wadlock barrels - CLBC and Ranger Plus wads do great!

I have not noticed a preference for any one wad or any one load in the HWL barrel. If its is a proven load in a smooth bore factory barrel, it will shoot as good or better with the HWL. Most times better. I have shot loads with Mec, MM, RSI, B&P, CSD and VP. Thay all shoot good. If I were picking my choice of wad to load for only the HWL barrel, it would be the RSI wad. Its only because I have the most faith in it to give me the best patterns.

I've been using the RSI's and some TPS for TSS and have no complaints against either, just wondered if anyone had a particular preference and why.
Thanks,

This ^^^

IMO, the thin(er) skirt of the SAM I shotcup is more responsive to the straight lands broached into the HWL barrels.
