For my 44 cal 58 Remington revolvers I use a felt wad (felt purchased from durofelt and wads punched out with a 7/16 steel punch). The wads are soaked in a lube mix of melted beeswax and lard and allowed to dry. If I'm gonna have the gun loaded for more than a few minutes I use a vegetable fiber card "wad" to separate the felt wad from the powder. If I'm just target shooting I skip the fiber card and just use the felt wad.

For my rifle, I just seat the projectile on top of the powder - no wad of any kind. For my inline I'm using a 354 grain semi-wad cutter type "conical" which is not really conical at all.
Beware the man with one gun, he knows how to use it
