A newly designed Xelerator wad
features a unique ignition chamber to allow higher velocity with safe pressures in the barrel.
Another option a big winner can choose is to accept a single check instead of wads
Essentially, the wads
to employ with these 7/8-ounce 12-gauge reloads are 1-ounce wads
or certain others that fill plenty of space.
