    I have been shooting skeet for about 10 years now and have always used the Claybuster CB0178-12 gray wad. What does everyone else use or used that have had good results. I was thinking of trying the Downrange wads, but just curious.

    Thanks

    I think the last guy to say something like that that was named Ned Pepper.;)

    I'll bet one of your shooting buds that use 7/8 Downrange wads would give you a hundred to try out. If I had any I would send you some.
