Seems to be the variable left out of all the recipies.

(I'm relatively new to reloading)

Here's my recipe...how much wad pressure should I be applying?

12 ga Green STS 1 1/8 hulls
Win Primers
WAA12 wads
17.5gr of 700X

Thanks in advance.

As little as you need to get the wad fully into the hull so as to get a good crimp. I've never had to adjust wad pressure and it seems that most of my reloads get around 10 lbs.

Wad pressure for plastic one piece wads and plastic hulls in a non-issue. Seat the wad firmly or squash it flat, 'bout the same thing!
