Re: PAPER CARTRIGES
Most paper cartridge conicals were a tad undersized from the factory, to compensate for the paper. I have a friend, who collects LeMat's, and he has a LeMat Mold that casts like 5 different types of projectiles from one mold. All of the conicals, in that mold, are a bit undersized, a bit sloppy in the cylinder. He made up some paper cartridges, and VIOLA, they snug down just fine now !!! He beleives this means that the conicals cast from the LeMat molds were designed to be used with paper cartridges.
Flash paper does feel "thick", I think thats because when the paper is soaked in the nitrate solution, it bonds, chemically with the nitrates in the liquid, and "puffs" the paper up a bit. It also feels a bit rough. The link I gave, says the separate paper 8" X 9" sheets are made from onion skin paper, which is, very thin.
