Hi
I can not find any thing that resembles"9lb Onionskin paper" here in the land of Oz(Australia),What the **** is it!
Would any body know what i could use,that i could get here,I've tried different paper companys and they don't know or just don't get back to me,so I presume they don't care,it very annoying :cry: I could be on to some paper with 25% cotton fibre in it,but am waiting to hear back from them,it just annoying having to wait for them to get back to you at their leisure.
A friend of mine said "Why not try Masking tape",so I made a few up with them,they do look good!,but have not tried them yet will tomorrow when i get time,has any body else tried masking tape?
Any way I 'll say goodbye for now,will post you my results later
see ya
No 3 :D

Not sure how the masking tape would work out. Paper leaves the bullet when it leaves the barrel. I'd think anything left on the bullet would have a negative influence on bullet flight. Try it though and let us know. One thing I have learned about this obseeesion is there isn't magic to it and there is more than one way to make it work.

Paper

No3-
Try airmail paper or go to a drawing/drafting/office supply and get tracing paper. What are you patching for, cartridge & black or smokeless powder?

Yep your right they did 'nt go to good,the first 5 rounds where spot on,but after those 5 they went all over the place
I was using 230 gr.452 pistol bullet with the masking tape
The charge was 15.0gr Unique& large pistol primer.
I did'nt think they would perform to good :lol:
I think I'll wait until I get a Paper Patch Mould,ah well worth a try, made me go out shooting so that's not to bad :grin:

See ya
