    Anyone Making Cartridges for a Chassepot ?

    I was wondering if anyone was making paper cartridges for Chassepots and had any advice to give. Iíve watched YouTube, but I am sure there is a lot more knowledge to be had from folks on this forum.
    Thanks

    there is a whole write up on a thread about them, the guy has had quite good luck and even though I will never own one it was quite fascinating to follow him. just use the search feature in the top right corner.
    if you are ever being chased by a taxidermist, don't play dead
