Match shooters spend a lot of time researching and testing shotshell components before big competitions. Selecting the correct wad is one important element for top performance. BPI's Competition Special wad provides clay and trap shooters the reliability and consistent performance they'll need for a championship. This wad works well with all popular brands of hulls and a variety of top selling powders.
Wads are essential for shotshell reloading. They fill extra space in the hull to make sure there is no room for the shot and powder to move around. They also act as a barrier between the powder and shot charges to ensure proper powder ignition, protect the shot from hot gasses and seal gasses behind the shot so that it can be propelled down the barrel. The wad also acts as a dual barrier to protect the barrel from becoming damaged by hard shot and to protect soft shot from becoming deformed by contact with hard barrel steel.
