Cork Cushion Wad - 12ga 1/4" (250/bag)

Cork wads provide cushioned but sturdy basewad support for all shotshell loading applications. Cork wads protect the base of the shotcup, prevent pellets from embedding in the plastic wad, and absorb inertia in the most critical phase of propulsion.

Adjusting Shot Columns: Different shot sizes will vary the shot column height of any given load (e.g., #9 shot will occupy less volume than #1 shot due to the space between the pellets). To remedy these height adjustments, use Cork or Felt wads underneath the shot to bring the shot column up to perfect crimping height. Cork wads are light, dense, very flexible, and very easy to work with.

Mix & Match: Cork wad sizes can be mixed and stacked to accomodate any shot column height requirements. When used as fillers inside shotcups, use 12 gauge cork wads inside 10 gauge shotcups and 20 gauge cork wads inside 12 & 16 gauge shotcups. Cork wads can be used in place of other filller wads, or on top of gas seals, but are not to be used directly on the powder. The 12ga 1/16" cork may also be used as a flexible overshot card wad..
