    Dry Fibre wadding

    Does anyone know where I can buy dry fibre wadding ?

    For use under cast lead bullets in black powder cartridge rifles

    1/4" sheet would be ideal or anything really would do

    Regular cardboard from a carton works nicely.

    Another wad punched from a milk carton loaded shiny side towards bullet base helps prevent it sticking to the bullet.
