It doesn't matter if the ball goes out dry or not. What you're after is keeping the fouling soft. Also a lubed wad helps keep the bore cleaner. Use no wad or lube and it won't fire many rounds before the cylinder starts to bind. If you load off the pistol that's a non issue. There's also the increased chance of chain fire with neither.
