Just for fun, made some paper cartdriges for the Colt Army cap and ball revolver in .44. Cigarette paper either COB or Gizeh ultra thin Queens size. 15 grain Swiss No 1, 15 grain Common wheat grits as filler and a .450 round ball with 147 grain.

Good enough to knock down the knock down targets and precise enough to hit where you aim up to 20m, though most of the time the targets are 5 m revolver, 8 - 15 m Rifle and 7 - 12 m shotgun. Sometimes all targets are at 5 m. LOL.

No target is to large or to close to miss it. If you want be the fastest shooter with ten ten four.
