Good wad for 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2 shot loads in Federal Gold Medal Paper Hulls. Fill was right and crimp worked great with these. Paper hulls are only straight wall hulls I use, so only application I have tried with these wads.
Too short for federal white plastic basewad hulls and 1-1/8oz

I tried using these in some Top Gun hulls with the white plastic basewads, Lyman gold medal data Red dot, international, universal, etc.
Every powder with said hulls and any straight hull with a short/deep basewad like said hulls with 1-1/8oz shot, and the S3 wad, just doesn’t bring the stack high enough(without added filler cards) to produce flat crimps. The crimps all dish in. I’m sure with a 1-1/4oz load they make produce nice crimps, not with 1.125oz shot(#7-8 shot), would need to over stack the cup to get it up to right height. You need to add 1/16-1/8” cork or similar type card above shot, or add over powder cards to get up to height. That’s just one extra step and COST to produce a nicely crimped target load. I moved to the CB6118-12 WW type 1-1/8oz wad, which gives PERFECT HEIGHT on my stack with very nice flat consistent crimps. 12S3 wads we’re designed for the old paper basewad hulls or hulls with a slightly taller basewad. They work great for slug cushions with petals removed, buck loads, but not the new Plastic basewad Top Gun hulls(without over stack or extra filler help).

Unlike the Federal 12S3, which is excellent for slugs, these clones have thick ribs on the inside of the shotcup that splay the petals as a slug is inserted. Don't buy them for slugs.
