Good to know you get something out of my posts Lori, & that they may be put to some use. Perhaps if you ever use my material in a book, you could mention my name.
Regards, Keith.

Hi Keith,
Just wondering what the diameter wads you cut with the punch, and is the diameter the same as the bullet calibre, or a little larger?

Thanks,
Bryan.

Bryan. This 20 gauge is a .62 caliber. The ball size is a little smaller, .60 caliber. The wads are .62 caliber so are a close fit, but not oversize. So that is three quarters of an inch diameter or about 19mm.
