Remington Shotgun Wads??

I've been doing some research, and the more research I do the more confused I get. So, this might be a really dumb question, but...
Are all Remington shotgun wads essentially interchangeable???
I know more about base wad construction, materials, uni-bodies and than I probably ever wanted to and I can't seem to tell if there is any material difference between the wads or not.
So here's the deal...I picked up a ton (several thousand) once fired shotgun hulls at an auction for a song. They were all sorted into different boxes and in excellent condition, but some of them do look older. Some of them are straight Remington, and others are Remington Peters. Looks like the straight Remingtons have a flat yellow plastic base wad and a straight wall. The Remington Peters have a conical tapered base wad which is either gray, paper or fiber (I can't tell which). I'd like to reload these shells, but for the life of me I can't figure out what wads to get for them. When I go to websites like Nachez, they don't seem to differentiate between different types of Remington. When I go to Claybusters, they seem to make the distinction that their wads perform best in tapered shells. So, is a tapered base wad mean 'tapered shell'?
Thanks in advance for any input!
