Default Distributor gear for Comp Cams billet stick?

Brand new Comp Cams billet hydraulic roller cam 525EFI clone with DUI distributor. Iím trying to figure out what gear I currently have, or I guess the best option is the composite unit?

If that is the case then a stock gear will work fine. I prefer to replace them when going with a new camshaft.

A hardened steel gear, correct?

Thanks, that's why I asked. Stock cast iron gear will suffice. Cam has same gear a flat tappet cam could have.
