WyoChukar, I was going to cut down some RGL's to 2 1/2" and load some 7/8 oz loads using the old R16 wad. I load almost exclusively 2 1/2" shells now. The RGL plastic is certainly tougher th ...

I can use it nice, mild 16 and 20 ga loads for my vintage guns. It was discontinued many years ago. I had switched to Universal in 16 ga and 20/28 for 20 ga, but will certainly use up the 7625, but wh ...
