I personally haven't had a single issue. I use Onmivore's "curling iron paper" method and they have always gone "bang" for me. It looks like I still have several hundred ready to go.....I need to get out and use them up!

I started with T777 in the Hemp wides papers with J-D homecast conical bullets. I hate the smell. That's honestly what pushed my decision to use 3f Goex and THEN I discovered how much easier clean-up was. Have fun with it. I've built my own former and rod with doweling and a block of 2x4 I formed myself. Built several hundred rounds now, At least 300 last year through my 1858, this year we've added an older Pietta 1860 Army to the family arsenal, so I'll share a range report in the appropriate forum then. (photo is before I dip the bullet and about and 1/8" of the paper in a 4:1 mix of  wax/lard. It provides a bit of lube and seems to make cleaning easier. I've done upwards of 100 rounds in an afternoon with only a drop or two of Kroil on the arbor and hammer pivot during the mayhem. )

 Thanks for the reply's. I really didn't think I would have a problem, going to use swiss after I use up some of this T777. Wish blackhorn 209  would work I have even more of that, use it in my in-line for hunting and long range plinking.
 Scrubby those are some nice looking cartridges you have there.
 Little back ground got started in cap and ball in 1978 when a sergeant in my unit gave me one for some money he owed me an old beat up 1860 I don't even remember who made it. Came up missing from my house hold goods moving back from Germany one time. Oh well crap happens.

Hi Apache, welcome to the forum.  I’ve had the pleasure of shooting up several hundred rounds of paper carts powered with T7 3f.  Ignition has always been reliable.  After loading I’ll lube on top.  I have yet to make a cart with a lubed wad under the lead that came out anywhere near right.  That’s another reason why Black MZ is also useful in the making of those.

I use either American Spirit flax papers or Raw brand hemp papers.  Loads of fun shooting those guys.  For me, either type of paper works real well.  Soon to eventually I’ll try some curling papers and see how those go. 

You make a handsome cart there, Scrubby.
