    In this video I'll show cap and ball shooters how to save a lot of money by making their own lubricated felt cap & ball revolver wads. The video shows how I make my black powder lube, and how I make lubed cap and ball revolver wads. Then we'll load an Uberti 1860 Army revolver using our homemade wads and do some shooting.

    Thanks, duelist1954;
    I bought 100 wads, found a recipe for lube and a source for the wool felt and have been making my own wads since. Still have most of the store-bought wads left, for emergencies.

    They work fine for me.

    Some say the home made lube makes the powder residue easier to clean up after a shooting session.
