Lubed dryer sheet wad

Anyone tried this instead of a wonder wad to allow for a few grains extra powder in a cylinder chamber?

no I haven't.
They are some type of artificial type material, similar to dacron.
They will likely melt. Try burning one and see.

Some folk report they make their own wads from durafelt, which is comprised of polyester, like the dryer sheets....just wondering. If polyester is a problem, I suppose one could use thin wads made from cereal box cardboard and soak in lube.

Gasket paper from the auto parts store works good.

I have been making revolver wads with polyester felt (double layered). There is no melted poly in the barrel and the recovered wads are not melted. I use a beeswax/Crisco blend and it does a fine job of keeping the fouling soft.
