To ROA users, do you use an over powder wad or card between the powder and the RB?

First, what is a ROA? For my patch and ball rifles if don't use a patch. However, if you're referring to revolvers, I would definitely use a felt wad over the powder to help seal the gases.

Oops,
ROA = Ruger Old Army, a black powder revolver in .45 caliber.
