    Thanks for all the help and info I’m getting.
    yer kinda over-thinking all this paper stuff. just pick one of the already recommended tried and true paper that folks have posted about, and have at it - as you have already done. you really do need to do yer own testing and come to yer own conclusions. this is true for the rest of the PPB cartridge building game, from its components to its processes. above all, do enjoy!

    I know what Iím planning on is different from single bore shooting, which is what I eventually want to do. But for now Iím getting some experience and learning a lot. I have normal size molds from Lee that maybe I can size the boolits down for the Marlin. For the time being, Iíve bought some .451 that I have patched and seem to work well. When I buy a new gun, I know I will have to get some new molds for it.
