With black powder, you don't need any kind of wad to make a BANG!

The re-enactors just pour the charge down the barrel and fire; if they are a distance from the "enemy" they will just empty the powder from the paper cartridge (no bullet) down the barrel then ram the paper down. But where the paper could strike someone or set a fire, they just dump the powder, bounce the stock on the ground to settle the powder down, cap and fire.
