I don't believe the end papers are nitrated. Point I was intending to make is it isn't necessary to nitrate them. By the way, I meant to type 288 shots without issue. Sorry for hitting the wrong key.

My first tabacker was Bull Durham in the cotton sack and I liked closing the bag like Rowdy Yates with one hand and my teeth, you know the drill.

Agreed, end papers aren't nitrated - why would they be? Cig papers are plenty strong and heavy enough for our purposes.

I've made carts with hair curling papers, yet never gave fire to them from my revolving belt pistol or Colt's navy patent.

Cigarette papers if treated would be so the do not burn as fast or are self extinguishing as most made ones are for fire safety when idiots smoke and fall asleep when dong so.

Nitrating a paper such as the end type used by hairdressers is so they will combust fully when the charge is fired.

There are posts and instructions online for nitrating the paper. Dixie used to sell already nitrated papers along with some Magic/joke shops.




I was wondering why end papers were nitrated, doesn't seem like a good idea to walk around with hair curlers in nitrated papers.

I checked out on magic shop nitrated paper; very reasonably priced but the shipping rate is way out there since they have to be shipped ground transportation because they're flammable. Something like $18 minimum. I think I'll stick to Zig-Zags.

Dry tea bags work great also. For glue, I use a glue stick.

used to smoke Drum tobacco out in the field, rolled in zigzags. quit smoking a few years back. miss it sometimes .
anyhoo, since cannabis is going to be legal nation wide here in october, all those fancy rolling papers are all over the place in Canada. I`ll keep an eye out for some of those brands mentioned.

End papers are not sold nitrated No kidding it would be bad. The shooter will have to nitrate them themselves. Look up nitrating paper.

Nitrating cig papers is completely unnecessary. I use American Spirit. No delay, no hang fires and almost no residue. Nitrate if you want to but it makes no difference when shooting.
