I look for cushion wads and all I find are fiver wads. Where do I get cushion wads and how thick are they?You need a good cushion wad. That's what they are for. Your lead is deforming against the side of the barrel, at ignition. A cushion wad helps prevent this.
Does your wife know what you are doing with her kettle?
No, you don't need cushion wads and you don't need chemicals or scrubbing brushes .
I can't believe how difficult some make it.
You will still get leading if you use the so called cushion wad that does cushion nothing once the combustion starts!
Adding lube does help but all you gotta do is use boiled water. Lifts the lead right off.

Britsmoothy,, thankyou and everyone else. Is that steel wool on the jag?Save your money pal.
You are receiving the usual misinformation.
Get the barrel hot with boiled water. The lead will lift out.
Mike I always try to thank everyone but your advice is on top of my list. You didn't win all those competitions doing it wrong. Thankyou sirWell I wouldn't listen to me either. Afterall I have only been shooting muzzleloading shotguns in competition for over 40 years
Even tied the national record at friendship back in the 80s.
I'd listen to the brit that shoots 4f in 12 gauge instead, then cleans his shotgun with boiling water so his bores flash rust. What a knucklehead.
You folks are on your own.
That's fine, I wasn't jesting.I don't find you even mildly amusing. Never did, never will.
