I have a TC New Englander Fowler 12 ga with a screw in choke.None of the local shops have any supplies.Does anyone have a suggestion on wadding for this set up and does anyone know if the Mossberg chokes will interchange with TC????????

Powder charge, then:
Over powder cards (http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=3616)
then:
Cushion wads (http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=3612)
then shot, and finally:
Overshot cards (http://www.dixiegunworks.com/product_info.php?products_id=3616)
The links are to Dixie Gun Works, but several others carry them as well.

I have been fooling with a Navy Arms double, and got hard and soft wads packaged 100 each part # 287872#3.99 + 5.29. I also got some Thompson shot cups #287803 thinking that I might want to load non toxic shot. That lasted until I found $139.00 for 7#! I guess I'll stay with my Browning for waterfowl. All this from Midway USA. The consensus is that shot cups don't offer any particular advantage to normal black powder shotgunning. I did get some 1/2" prelubed in that above shipment,a nd plan to try and see what loads like the cards and what likes the fiber wads. I would be interested in what is appropriate for a patched ball load in a 12 ga. smooth bore. My barrels micro around .7 with the left barrel a little tighter than the right. The lightfield slugs I got to try are $6.99 for 10, so If they are reasonably accurate that's reasonable for a little bit of deer hunting at close range. Bill
