    BT, it's about time somebody field tested some of those Russkie slugs on some pigs. Let's see what those things to something on the hoof! You've fot a xouple of sick days in the bank I just know. My trigger finger is itching bad and there was even a Nt. Geo. special on pigs last that got my blood up. Go get 'em!

    Flush may be the correct way. I sprayed some Aqualube (Hi Tek sizing lube) and the wad went flush in. But like you said,the cushion "gives" a little when seating with more force.

    Hmmmm... I'll have to try again. The ones KrackenFan69 sent me looked just like Petander's and didn't want to go any deeper when I tried. I am sure they didn't settle in any when I loaded them into the hulls using my MEC Sizemaster either.

    I will give it another go to see if I can get them deeper.

    Could there be different length wads for the Gualandi clone and Paradox and Tusker clones (different skirt length?)?

    One thing though is if they aren't seated in before the trigger is pulled they will be after! On that note I'll have to look at the ones I recovered. I can't recall for sure but I think one or two had wads still attached after digging them out of the berm.

    I may stand corrected... again!

    They are all the same wads. I'll tell you longbow they do take some force to get deeper but they will sit flush given enough force.
    I'm not sure the difference it will make how deep they are seated. An Internet search shows some people have reported better accuracy by seating them to at least the second step on the wad.
    I really need to get out and test some of these head to head.
