Did you get the memo?

Shotshells will probably soon become persona non gratia. Plastic wads are turning up in waterways and the environmentalists are now calling for a ban, just like with lead shot.
OK, people were shooting shotguns long before the improvements provided by plastic wads, and various fiber wads are still being manufactured, these mainly for black powder and brass cases.
But they are wads.
Here’s my issue: where are the recipes published for reloading smokeless with fiber wads and steel/Bismuth shot?

Those are actually plastic caps from almond soy milk containers

Do people think it is ok to litter. As long as it isn’t their own property. Littering is a crime. Try to pick up your own shot shells. Be responsible. Let’s all get along…

What’s next, I didn’t pickup my shattered clay pigeons?

The OP stated wads, not shells. Try to find those.

… and pick-up the shot that didn’t hit the birds, including those that went into the water. :rofl:

I reload mine but I’ll be damned if I’m going looking for a ducking Wad or #8 shot just because someone that probably has never been behind a Springer working the Wheat field whines about it.

I know. I am like that. I had good intentions.
I do pick up my wads and shot shells and bullets when I can find them. I don’t think clay hurts anything.

I know how difficult it can be to find wads.

I’m sure they both had a “discussion” about my “Mindless” purchase without any consideration of anyone else. Mind you I have yet to ask about the Old Navy, Macy’s, Liz Taylor and Jared Jewelers bags I saw on the floor of her closet. THAT is probably none of my business huh. :thinking:

Unless they are all for you, then ask away! What could it hurt. :wink::grinning:
