This is our Master Kit.  It comes with the knob and block for the caliber, calibers, or specific guns, the marked dippers for them, and one funnel. It also comes with all the things you need to make paper cartridges except for the bullets and powder. This includes two packages of Elements rice paper rolling papers, a 5/8" paper circle cutter, a regular size Elmer's All Purpose glue stick, and a 2oz can of black powder lube.  We also include a Berry's 20cal Ammo can as a project box. They are Made in the USA by Americans. 

The lube is enough for approximately 200 paper cartridges, if the lube is kept hot throughout.  If you heat the lube, take it off the heat, and dip until you can no longer dip, it will not last anywhere near as long.  The two packages of papers are enough for about 200 rounds of the .36 and .44, if you cut two stips for the body and use the end for two circles (see instructions page). For the larger cartridges, the number is about a half to two thirds, depending on well you combine your cuts. 

All of our kits are engineered to fill the chamber so that the top of a conical bullet reaches the very top of the chamber when compressed with the loading lever.  Small variances in height can be obtained by how much you fill or overfill the dipper. 

For lower power target loads, you fill the powder first, for how much you want to use, then top it off with Cream of Wheat to about an 8th of an inch below the rim of the paper. 

None of our kits come with gunpowder, bullets, caps or of course the guns in the pictures. Our measurements are based on our experience, and you use them at your own risk. 
 
 
This .44 caliber kit has been engineered specifically for the Johnson & Dow bullet from Eras Gone Bullet Molds. If you fill the dipper just so that the rim has no powder on it, the top of the bullet will be at the edge of the cylinder.  

We are currently testing other molds from Lee, and some real Colt 44H molds, which are very close to the Johnson & Dow.  The .44 Kerr mold we have also not tried.

Note that the J&D bullet DOES NOT FIT IN A .44 51 NAVY. You can use our brass tapping rod, or any other rod that won't damage your gun to start the bullet so that it clears the entry port. 

For roundballs, if you want them topped right up, you should fill the dipper to overflowing, with a little on the handle. 

Experiment with your gun so that you don't run into a situation where the bullet or ball will not compress enough to clear the cylinder.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!


If you do get stuck, which most of us have, take your cylinder out and hacksaw the top off of the bullet.

New to Black Powder

After viewing video on making paper cartages I thought I would give it a try. 1st order was a little slow on getting filled but arrived and gave me a couple hours to discover I wanted more. Placed 2nd order for loading block and extra lube. Placed 3rd order for bullets. Found that I can't directly load paper cartages in to my 1860 revolver, have to load using a cylinder stand, also Johnson & Dowel bullets really have to be compressed into cylinders. Extra powder can cause bullet to not seat flush - causes whole new problem. No such problem with round ball loads but they still can't be directly loaded into my 1860,

Good Stuff

Easy to use, quick learning curve. I set up in front of the tube and rolled 50+ cartridges while binging “Deadwood.”
Put your rolling skills to good use while the snow flies and have loads of cartridges ready for Spring!
