I found a gunbroker listing for Winchester WAA12XW wads. It looks like they date from the 1970s.

I can find nothing about them in any of the Lyman manuals. They are illustrated in The Handbook of Shotshell Reloading by Couger & Henderson, but no loads are given.

What was the application of these wads? Any sources of loading data known?

Thanks.

--Bob

If memory serves, these are the old AA Handycap wad. Winchester had 2 wads early on for their AA hulls the one we are familiar with and a wad they used in their Black and later Silver Handycap loads. The diffrence was that the latter had 3 stout legs around the permiter of the base wad joining the cup. They had a dimple in the center of each to facilitate bending. The wad was much stiffer than the regular WAA12. I may have a wad or two tossed in an old box some where. I have not seen these since maybe 1976 or '77.
