A must-have, A to Z, step-by-step simple manual of 'why' the paper-patched soft lead bullet is demonstrably superior to the common metal jacketed bullet. Covers history and world-wide use of the paper patched (or paper jacketed) bullet for thirty years (1880-1910) until modern manufacturing eclipsed its use in the name of 'productivity'.
Once you get the history and advantage of this near lost art, the book covers everything you need to reconstruct the paper- jacketed bullet to fit the varied specs of any given new or vintage rifle. The pros and cons, the examples, the results on targets and summing up the varied methods are all here.
Simply written, clear, concise and easy to adapt to almost any re-loading regimen. Fire your ordinance without ever touching metal to your rifling - then superior expansion even at long range, slower velocities and you can begin to see only a few of the superior advantages of paper versus metal jackets.
