    The paper is dependent on several things, Bullets Dia, Thickness, individual wrapping.
    A quick way to tell is bullet dia + ( paper thickness X 4) 2 wraps
    Wet or dry under tension the paper stretches slightly thinning a small amount.
    PP bullets are available in a small ranges in .oo1 increments to allow for different papers and bore / groove sizes.
    Papers vary in thickness most tracing papers air mail paper and drafting papers are worth trying. Seth Cole 55 w is popular,and works well. 25% cotton rag used to b the one

    Ideally the outer wrap turns to confetti while the inner unwraps with the fold under attached right at the muzzle. On a calm day you will see the confetti and inner wrap right in front of the muzzle

    I have shot a lot of PP bullets, this is cool.

    Buddies laughed at me when I was shooting 550 gr PP out of my 458 Winchester Magnum one day.

    I shoot 250 grain paper patched bullets at 2350fps from my 358 Win. bolt gun
    They kill deer very well
