PT1253 wad substitute?

I have been loading HW13 for a few years now and have been using a 3inch cheddite hull with a bpgs gas seal, a pt1253 wad and 1 1/4 oz of hw13. That load also takes longshot powder which is about all I can find locally. I’ve got it dialed in with my choke and shotgun and love the load. Well now the pt1253 and the bpgs gas seals are on back order. I’ve been waiting for months and I’ve been told hopefully the end of December. My question is is there another wad I could use in place of the pt1253 until those come in? I don’t want to gamble and change pressure or anything but I would like to be able to stick with this load instead of finding other components until these wads arrive.

They say they have 2 bags in stock, couple dollars/bag cheaper than BPI too.
