Cast iron camshafts will need a cast gear and as normally supplied on MSD products. A steel camshaft (many if not most roller camshafts are steel) may require either a steel or bronze gear, with the steel lasting longer (Fords usually need steel). There are also engineering plastic gears - composite - which are supposedly good for all camshafts.

Some good info here: Distributor Gears, Iron, Bronze
