Filthie's Mobile Fortress Of Solitude
Where Great Intelligence Goes To Be Insulted

Any of you percussion stubfarts out there ever make these? From what I have learned, shootists of the cap and ball era tended to shoot paper cartridges as much as they did loading loose components - which is what I am doing now. 

Paper cartridges would come in a small wooden box of six, with caps, wrapped up with paper and twine. Some of the truly rabid black powder geeks even make those they will charm the soul of the casual front stuffer like me. Mind you - some of those guys make and screen their own gun powder too.

I think I might go down to the store and buy some cigarette paper and nitrate a few dozen to see what happens.

  1. I've seen paper cartridges, but never used them. I don't shoot that much black powder anyway.

    The man in the video has been doing this for a while, and he's got it down to a science. If I could duplicate his production line, I'd shoot a lot more black powder.
