I use the round ball paper cartridge in my 44 and it works really good. Very accurate. In my 36 I am using the conical. Harder to make the cartridge as I don't have a heeled bullet mold yet. Seem to just as accurate as it is with the round balls. The paper cartridges are a lot easier and more handy to load in the field. So much faster. Love both ways. Been loading powder and ball since 1968.

Terry Behm in Arizona made some using the tissue paper for grabbing donuts in the bakery section of grocery stores. Paper not nitrated or needs to be. Anyone use the devices that presses six round balls or bullets in the disconnected cylinder? Takes longer but is supposed to put equal pressure on the wad and powder and seat each round the same depth. The company that makes the device has a standard and deluxe versions. Don't recall its name or the prices.
