    I've heard of people using them, but in my experience, they're very delicate when wet. Damp would be about right to keep them from turning into pulp by the time I'm done with them. I wonder how "end wraps" paper would work - that paper they use...

    Hey, that parchment for cooking could present some interesting possibilities. Haven't tried them, myself. The only potential fly in the ointment that comes to mind is that some brands are non-stick, and may present some tendency to not stay put or...

    Greetings, C. Latch! I've been PP'ing for some years now and can immediately recommend a stout, but thin paper which matches the composition of bank note paper of the late 1800's, which is 100% rag drafting vellum, still made in abundance and...

    I once had an Armi San Paolo Colt 1861, my first BP revolver. With soft conicals and max charges of 2f, it was surprisingly accurate, but not very decisive in effect. Groundhogs I shot with it dove back in their holes, never to be seen again. Had I...

    Is the .357 B&D the one that uses the urethane collars around the case neck? Maybe that's another one. How is it for set-back against the breech face and tying up cylinder rotation? I had read somewhere that some revolvers would bind up readily and...

    yeahbub replied to a thread 8MM Mauser in Hunting with CB's
    Another alternative to 8mm bare cast is paper patching convectional .30 cal cast boolits. Being cheap and already having a selection of them, I use 2 wraps of .004 paper (copy paper cover wrapper) or 3 wraps of .0025 drafting vellum. On a .311...

    I use American Pioneer 3f in my '58 Remmie for a several reasons; 1. It's non-corrosive and cleans up with water (never saw any evidence of rust). 2. You can use conventional boolit lubes without the usual horrid fouling from petroleum/BP...

    Doesn't Remington 7.62x39 brass have small primers? . . . Coulda sworn they do. Seems the long way around the barn to convert Grendel brass, but, hey. . . . Not happening. A 20 BHN alloy is ordinarily antimony rich to the point that they'll...
