    Manufactured cigarettes are required in several jurisdictions to use so-called "fire safe" cigarette papers. Loos leaf cigarette papers are not.

    Looks good! I only make them for 44cal but with non-violent house rounds, top with corn meal to seat the ball out to the mouth, card wad and a lube wafer to keep fouling soft. I twist both ends and cut the tails off, store my 44 cartridges in 45acp...

    I have had very erratic performance, including major velocity swings with full to the base and pressured if not compressed loads of TB in 45 Colt. Like you, I will not use compressed loads of TB. Haven't tried it in 45 acp.

    Just to clarify, I am not suggesting that the boolit be larger than bore size, only then, when patched, the final diameter should exceed bore diameter. If I hadn't been clear on that or my meaning was misunderstood, my apologies. If I misunderstood...

    Thanks for the very cool photo. I am aware of what is under discussion with regard to chamber size and I have not taken issue with the position that a tighter chamber is preferable to looser chamber, nor have I expressed views that would suggest an...

    Great boolit for the 30-30! .311 may be on the large size for Winchester's cut rifling, but it's a good place to start. My Marlin microgroove likes .311 but I have a Handi Rifle with cut rifling that prefers .309 and an old Winchester (since rebored...

    With Ruger now chambering several rifles in 450 Bushmaster, it may give more impetus to the cartridge, otherwise, it's really 6 vs half a dozen.

    So, there may be some terminology issues here. There are tighter and looser chambers. I don't believe they are necessarily "paper patched chambers" and grease groove chambers", just different sized chambers. Seating depth of course depends on bullet...

    You clearly have a real issue. Chippy. I did not address or refute any remarks you made. I explained what I have learned and it contradicts your belief. Tough. Move on. I don't know who you imagine you are or why you think you're the forum bully-boy...

    Sooooo touchy. Usually a sign of insecurity. You apparently have an experience. Mine differs.

    Don, I find myself quite in agreement with you. First, I don't necessarily hold with the view that there were "paper patch" and "greaser" chambers per se in the original Sharps and Remington big bore rifles. There were differences in chambers but I...

    Happy to share 35 Krag data. But I also think starting 5% below starting loads for the 35 Whelan is going to be a good route.

    So I agree with a good deal of this. I have been shooting paper patched bullets for about a decade with both smokeless and black powder in calibers from .30 to .50. I have also read Major Roberts' excellent book referenced above and will take issue...

    If a microgroove barrel, you are likely to find fat and slow works best, ie at least .310, possibly .311, and keep velocity under 1800 fps. My 336 likes 19 grs 4227 under 170 grs Lyman 311041 quite a bit.

    35 Russian was just a way to save shot out Mosin barrels. Rebore and neck up. Same as the 35 Krag.

    So, Jesse did a 35 Krag for me. This is just the 30-40 necked up to .358 with no other changes. I assume the 35 Russian is the same, ie. no improvements, as in changing the shoulder or removing body taper. Lee will make you a set of custom collet...
