    Can anybody tell me what a good 2-3/4" 20 gauge steel shot wad is for straight walled hulls? Currently I'm loading Rio's
    Thanks, Daniel

    BPI’s CSD20 or PT2090 are the ones that I use.

    Csd20. 3/4oz steel loads. Maybe 355gr with a fold. That is pretty much pressure limit at 1400+ speeds.
    There is a good 382gr load with a roll crimp.
    Ive sent in several tests for 2.75in 20ga, csd20, trying to get full 7/8oz with a fold.

    Much much better 20ga 3in options. Csd203 wad, tps20 which is really gualandi tubo wad, pt2092, sam1. Numerous 400 to 437gr options. Or 1500fps lighter.
