Anyone have any experience with making and using paper cartriges in thier revolvers. I know they were pretty standard for long arms in CW but never heard much about revolver ammunition until recently. Was reading letters from a trooper in Hampton's Legion to his father in S.C. requesting that he send his slave, Jesup, back to him in Virginia. Seems Jesup was paritcularly adept at putting together pistol cartriges besides being a crack shot. The whole troop missed him, both to take care of their ammunition needs and to keep the community cook pot filled with squire and rabbit. Just what kind of paper would you need and how would you go about putting together paper cartriges? Rifle cartriges used a waxed or greased paper to help keep the powder dry while in amunnition crates and individual pouches.
