The topic of older Remington wads has surfaced several times recently. Below are some images that may be helpful These show the wads from 1972, with dimensions and the identifying numbering from then and now.

Would you happen to have the same kind of information for the latest Winchester WAA20 7/8 WADS 20 GA.

Because I reload only 12 ga, I haven't kept track of the minutia, ancient history, and trivia of other gauges. However, I don't recall Winchester publishing any ads with dimensional data, if that is what you're seeking.

A true 20 guru may come along to answer your question. If not, you might post it as a new subject so the entire forum can take a look.

Good luck.

Thanks for the response. Yes I am looking for the dimensions for the WAA 20 wads.

A recent post mentioning the R12L had me looking for this wad chart in my loading notes.

After reexamining the images, dimensions and identifying numbers for Remington wads, an interesting observation occured.

Compare these two: The R12L and the RXP12. Both are current production wads.

The only difference between these wads is shotcup depth. The crush sections are of identical design and length: .810"

It appears then, any lead shot load data for the RXP12 could be used interchangeably with the R12L wad. And vice versa, with any R12L data of 1 1/8 ounce or greater.

Again, the only difference between the two wads is .110" of shotcup depth.

Another side by side picture comparing the two wads can be found here:

Given the current dearth of loading components...

SP and RPA are also the same except for petal length. I have used RPA instead of SP and they fit/shoot fine. I also have Rem Postwads that I used to load to open the full choke barrel. I think those were RPA with a post in the middle. Been a while though. They definitely matched one of those six.

Of the six Remington wads shown in the OP illustration, only the RPA 12 is out of production.
