I have worked up a nice 7/8oz load using these wads and Fiocchi/Cheddite hulls with the help of the low pressure forum. I have been buying these hulls and wads from Graff & Sons but now they are out of wads and have no idea when they will be back in stock. Is there a wad that I can substitute? Thanks, Bob

the B&P wad is very similar to the gualaundi in OAL and diameter. Its called the 16 ga. Trap Commander by Ballistic Products. They are called the Supersonic wad by Precision Reloading. There aren't any cheap sources for them that I know of though, so you'll pay BP or PR prices or do without. Sorry about that.

Found a supply of SG16 wads. BP stocks them. From what I understand, Graff & Sons imports and wholsales them to dealers here in the states who, in turn, repackage and retail them. BP has them for the same price as Graffs but charges 3X as much shipping. No Crying or Very sad here, I'm just glad I can get them.

Indeed, BP does sell the Gulandis. Friend and I are making a run up that way end of the week. Shipping is high, but we're heading to Cabela's in Owatonna MN anyhow, and BP is not that much farther.

The BP SG16 and the TC16 are different wads. The one is the sporting 16 and the other is the trap commander 16. I think you need the SG16

Correct. I have 2000 SG16 on the way. I only shoot maybe 300 shells/month, so this order should last me for a while with what I have from the last Graff order.

Bronco: will you share your load data with us? I am interested in a load just as you describe. I am going to buy some of the SG16 wads, and have some Fiocchi hulls. Thanks
