Well, the little paper cartridges worked slicker than pig snot! Fun to goof around with too. As a side note, I did grease over top of the conicals with my home made bullet lube after loading the cartridges. I shot all 15 rounds, (10 at paper from 12 yards and 5 at a gong from 20 yards.)
I was once chastized on another forum several years back for casting and shooting balls and conicals from these repro brass moulds because, they "did not cast decent bullets for shooting." Some men should just stick to the modern stuff. I get these revolvers to work very well for the intended purpose with simple methods. You mess with them often and long enough, and they sort of become second nature.There is 10 rounds in that 12 yard group. More than good enough for close range authority. I picked up the three flattened pieces of lead from the ground that are resting just above the orange dot. They were right in front of the gong that I shot from 20 yards.
