My preferred payload for 16 and 28g skeet practice loads. Can't find a wad in 20g that'll work without fillers.

Somewhat the reason RST (Ched) 2 9/16" hulls are employed in these recipes = no filler; can you shorten your 20ga hulls?

I'm sure you could, but I'm too lazy to cut hulls for target loads, and there's likely not enough adjustment in a MEC 9000 to run them.
