Federal 3" Steel 7/16 basewad and 2 3/4" steel headed Top Gun & Game Load
Notice the paper basewads appear different in size. Would I be correct in saying that the steel headed Federal Top Gun utilizes a 9/16 basewad, or do both of these hulls implement the same 7/16 basewad? What about the brass headed Federal Top Gun?
Sagebrush wrote:the new win hulls with the 2nd pce base wad can cause problems with some wads with some load data,since
it sticks out a little and might keep a wad from going deep enough or other problems............ I have hear guys at the gun club say that they dont use the new style any more,due to its make up and have gone to other hulls that work without
any problems, no matter what powder or wad they use.
Win and Rem are both tapered hulls and maybe this new design makes things worse,who knows?
I do know that a Federal 12 so wad does not like the new style win hull,however...............
Sure is some good info and pictures on this post......................... !!!

It limits capacity a little, and with small powder charge loads can stick a wad in the hull temporarily, similar to high taper target hulls. I hear someone say every now and then to load them with cheddite data. The people that say that obviously don't test their shells. Even with just a simple chrony. Load a cheddite recipe in a Rio steel hull, and it'll be FAST and HOT. It's amazing how much of a difference that little basewad variation makes.
