Using Good Wads for Best Shotgun Pattern

One of the requirements of a good cartridge is the use of a first-class wad or wadding, particularly over the powder; and to protect powder from the injurious effects of contact with a chemically prepared or greased felt it is advisable first to place over the powder a cardboard wad, or waterproof wad if preferred, of the exact size of the internal diameter of the shell and over this wad one or more felt wads one size larger than the bore. Good results are attainable in different guns with several methods of using wadding, and this can be ascertained by experiment some preferring to use one cardboard and two felt wads over powder, and others one felt between two cardboard wads. It is a question, however, whether the cardboard on top of felt wads is of any benefit. All that is necessary is to establish a complete gas-check by good wadding of some kind, made of a close, firm texture that will not permit gas from the powder charge to get to the shot. Over the shot it is considered better to use a material that will easily crumble to pieces. To hold this top wad in place, the shell should be carefully and evenly crimped down on the wad.
