    Anyone recognize this wad?

    Hello there,I was hoping maybe someone could help identify these?.odd ducks extremely stout and made like nothing I've ever seen.looks at first to be a rem design but as far as I know they never had a 2 piece wad.

    The shotcup looks like a Remington style ribbed, but it's a Federal style two piece wad. I'm thinking it is neither. Is there any chance this is from pull-down ammo?

    It does have the remmy look but yeah the whole 2 piece system had me stumped.its possible they came from demil ammo or something of the like.id gotten them years ago at a auction.pulled em out awhile ago and started tinkering with ball loads using these.id like to find more but I don't know what I'm looking for lol
