Re: PAPER CARTRIGES
When I make them I use tea bags. They're stronger than cigarette paper and burn cleaner plus they don't leave any unburned paper behind. They are a PITA to make tho. I roll a paper around a 3/8 wooden dowel and glue it with Elmers white glue. Slide it off the dowel and tie off one end with thread. drop in a ball and twist it behind the ball and tie it off. Pour in a pre measured charge of powder and twist and tie again. If you want a traditional look you can fold the tail over the cartridge and tie it around the cartridge but I just cut the tail off close. No need to tear it open before loading or prick it through the nipple. Standard caps have no problem blowing through. If you leave the tail you might have to prick it through the nipple and it might leave unburned paper behind, I never tried it.
