Fiber Wad Boost

I use both 12- and 20-gauge fiber wads as filler to give the ability to use the same plastic wad with the different sized slugs. Since slugs are of varying heights, they often need a little boost to bring them to the top of the plastic wad and the 20-gauge fiber wad fits perfectly inside the 12-gauge plastic wad. You can simply peel these fiber wads to the height you need with your fingers. You’ll figure out how thick you need it pretty quickly.

The MP-Molds sabot slug was the perfect height for the plastic wads I used. I could have ordered different ones, and may do so in the future, but the fiber wads worked fine in a pinch. I used the 12-gauge fiber wads to boost the plastic wad over the powder charge. Again, this method worked wonderfully.
