1. Full length size cases.
2. Prime and add powder.
3. Seat the thin pre-cut vegetable fiber wad firmly against powder charge with corresponding dowel or a squared off pencil.
4. Add shot, you can use #7, #7-1/2, #8, #9, #10, #12 shot. We personally use and sell #9 shot. Leave the shot down about .020 to install the wad.
5. Install metal wad or vegetable fiber wad over shot. I use metal because I load the cylinder with a few bullets just in case I encounter a larger varmint. Vegetable shot wads don't hold as good in my experience, but its shooter preference and we have both types of shot wads.You may find you need to flare the case slightly when using the metal wads.
6. Use your crimp die to lightly secure the wad. You can use a Lee Precision Factory Crimp Die, a Carbide Crimp Die or etc. depending on the caliber. That way you can leave your bullet seater crimp die alone and not mess up the setting.
7. Seal the top of your shot wad with Mom's fingernail polish or use a primer sealer etc.
