Anybody on this forum do paper patching? I've been patching for my Sharps 45-100 and 45-120 for a few years now and had very good results. Would like to hear from those that have tried it.

How and why do you paper patch a cartridge round?

I understand about paper patching, but I thought it was just done with muzzleloaders?

Ok, I just watched a video on loading a 45/70 paper patched. It's a new one on me. Every time I heard paper patched I assumed it was in a muzzleloader. Live and learn.

Some of the "Old Timers" shot muzzle loader records that have yet to be broken at long ranges of 600 plus. There is a book on paper patching called The Paper Jacket by Paul Mathews that I refer back to quite often. He explains paper patching very well with a lot of extras mixed in. He has a whole series of books on BPCR and casting.

I've found that that the most accurate load to date for my Pedersoli Sharps 1874 is a 405 gr .458 bullet sized down to .451" and paper patched dry.  I'm going to be trying some 500 gr shortly. I tried them bare befor because running a 500 gr .458" bullet into a .451" sizing die is tough.  I have a .454" sizing die on the way so I will be able to do it in 2 steps.
One other thing I think will help is running the bullet into the die butt end first.

I shoot a paper patched Pritchett bullet from my Parker Hale Navy Rifle. I in fact make up the whole cartridge. The beauty of these rounds is they do not foul like the minnie bullet does after only 15 or 16 shots. Puts a lovely shine on the bore as well. I will be trying paper patched bullets in my Parker Hale First Generation .451 Volunteer long range rifle. Re the cartridges, I have shot up to 40 round without having to wipe, the last shot loading as easily as the first. The only reason for 40 rounds is that was all I had at the time.
