Default A Heads Up

I recently ordered a case (5000) 16ga wads from Ballistic Products. We all know buying in volume reduces the cost. I was surprised when fed Ex dropped these off this am in one big box....that's right a big box with 5000 loose wads in it. I called BP and asked if they had changed there packaging and they said I didn't specify I wanted them bagged! They said I saved about $20 getting them this way but I'll spend most of that on zip lock bags to put them in.

If you order wads from BP in volume be cautious of how you ask for them.

The vast majority of my 16's are loaded hence the need for wads.

Use trash bags and as soon as you empty one you can use it in the trash can. Nothing wasted.

I'm going to recycle the empty 250 count bags as they will fit on the bench the rest of the bulk will be redistributed into more manageable boxes that can easily be stored for future use.

I just didn't expect to get a big box of loose wads.
