Do the cork wads hold tight under recoil?
They do as long as they're a little over bore size. They're a bit forgiving in my choked barrels (spring back to shape) unlike overshot cards. Not sure what punch you'd need for your 12 guage. I use a 20mm arch punch for my 10 gauge. I rechecked the cork tiles I punch from, and they're more like 3/16" thick, but feather light, and made up of compressed cork particles about the size of course coffee grinds. Before I experimented with the cork, I just used a 1/8" felt wad over the shot. That held up under recoil too, but is more expensive and doesn't break up like the cork.
Liberty and freedom often offends those who understand neither.
