"Best" 16 gauge wads out there?

Probably looking at a 1 oz load, adjust shot size as needed for whatever I am hunting.


Looking like purple Federal hulls they use with Game loads and High Brass loads. Thinking same hull.

Possibly black Remington Game Load hulls.

Those Rem game load hulls are the only current tapered interior hull on the market that I know of. You can use the AA copy Claybusters in them or the Rem SP16, but they are sized for 1 1/8 oz.The Fed are straight wall like the Euro hulls. I run mostly Cheddites with Euro SG16 or the Commander Z16 wads for 1 oz. DR-16 fits well for 7/8 without the need for a bean or cherrio for a filler. The Federals are roughly the same fit.

Is one hull preferred over the other?

I load more Cheddite (RST) hulls than any others. I get wads and hulls from Ballistic Products. BPSG16 and BPSG16S. I use DR16 wads for target 7/8oz. Remington SP16 come in handy for some uses.

I use cheddite hulls and Ballistic Products wads for one ounce loads in my 16s. Believe it’s the SG 16 wad.
