No, I don't use and Over Powder wad.  I use to.  You certainly can.  No harm no foul although I do have a CAVEAT:  I have been loading with 2F APP for the last several years and have had no problem with APP coming up around the wad.  I don't see any reason not to use an over powder wad.  I didn't see any difference, just made loading faster to eliminate it.  Not much faster at that.

I have some Rocky Mountain 12 gauge brass and load with 80 grains of bp, over powder card and usually a wad.  I trimmed down a 100 grain spout to 80 and put it on my flask, works great.   Sometimes I use a few layers of wasp nest in place of the card/wad, then equal amount of shot and a card held in place with elmers.  They work great.  I deprime with a long nail and seat the new primer with a dowel.   I love telling some friends who are avid trap shooters that I load with a hammer, nail and dowel.   My brother in law wanted to know if I was leaving him the shells in my will because they are way more stout than the others on the market.  I cant really tell a difference with the wasp nest vs card/wad, but I never really patterned the gun.

I have half a dozen of the Rocky Mountain 12ga shells.  But the primer pockets on mine are so dang tight that both depriming and priming are very, very difficult (need Harley Davidson size hammer), so I haven't used them in a long time.

Mine love the 209s   They are a bit of a tap to get out, but after a good cleaning, they seat perfectly.

What a kind and generous offer. Thank you but the only thing I would be in need of are SG primers. I have none.
