R&D/Howell's Conversion Cylinders (General)
That's excellent shooting! I hope to be able to work with one of these conversion cylinders later this year. I'll be sure to post a range report here when I do.
Meanwhile, my project is to master combustible paper cartridges for the .44 Remington and Colt army models, Colt's .36 navy and .31 pocket models. I have been researching the 19th c. manufacturing methods and am now trying to achieve the best configuration of materials and process for ease-of-making as well as practical loading at the range. I am trying to limit myself only to those materials that would have been readily available to 19th c. makers, so I am sourcing 100% cotton rag "onion skin" bond paper, potash, water glass (sodium silicate), etc. When I have made some more progress, I'll post a note here to let you know how it is going, if you are interested in that?
