Default Slug Wads

I've been getting tired of having to let my shotgun just sit because:

1) you cant hunt or shoot in this county because you cant shoot in the city and the city covers 70% of the county!
2) The local range is indoor and thus a slugs only affair. At a $1.20 a shot, this is prohibitively expensive.

So I went ahead and ordered a lee 1 oz slug mold and a dripper. I need to pick up a torch head and fuel this week to go with it. My question is, what makes up a good wad? Can I reuse the shot cup in the 7.5 shot target loads I'll be using, or should I modify them in some way or go for broke and order something?

Basically, what qualities make up a good wad for slugs through a smooth bore?
[Remington 870 12GA][Stoeger Model 3500 12GA][Savage 116 .30-06][Savage Model 10 Bull Barrel .223][Marlin 336SS .30-30][Marlin 39A .22][Marlin 795 22LR][Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm][Ruger MkIII 22LR]

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
