Kit comes in two versions. One with thick and thin vegetable wads and a kit with thin vegetable wads and metal over shot wads. The metal over shot wad is more recoil resistant when your loading with shotloads and normal ammunition. Metal over shot wads are good when you load your cylinder with a few bullets for larger varmints. Recoil from the normal ammunition could dislodge shot loads with only vegetable wads. So, you can choose between the two over shot wads.
Each kit contains 50 powder wads and 50 over shot wads.

I found this kit while looking for bullets. After receiving the kit I loaded per instructions and now have a new snake gun.
Thanks Sages for a quality product.

Purchased this kit as a turnkey solution for rat abatement. This kit lends itself to making .45 LC shot shells for use out of a .45 LC lever gun. Hand loaded with a Lee "cowboy" press, I am able to saturate 7 3/4" paper targets, vaporize target clays and perforate steel cans with #9 bismuth shot at approximately 5-10' using these gas checks and wads. I highly recommend this product and will buy again.

I used these wads as the over the powder wads in 45 ACP shot shells and they worked great. Because their diameter is large that the neck I pressed the wads in with an arbor press and because the wads are larger I got a better seal than using the 41 caliber wads. The wads could be pressed in with a dowel.
