Help me understand gas checks

I am trying to understand gas checks. I understand that this is something that enables one to shoot lead bullets at higher velocities. I have seen them a Midway and they look like copper disks. Do I need to cast my own to use these or can they be added to a commercially made bullet purchased w/o gas check? I am pushing these bullets through a 454.

Gas checks can also make for a more accurate cast bullet. The gas check creates a near perfect base to the bullet. The bullet base is as important as the muzzle crown for accuracy.
