I'm fairly new at cap and ball revolver shooting, so new in fact I havent done any yet.I was just about to give it a try when I remembered that I didnt have any wads on hand. So I'm in the process of making some.I have an old felt hat and a 7/16 hollow punch from Harbor Freight.The wads are punched out and will be lubed tomorrow. Now I have a question or two. I've noticed the wads are thinner than the Duro Felt that is usually used. Probably by about half. Will this make any differance? And how long after a person lubes the wads must he wait till they are used? Do they need time to "dry" or "cure"?
