This is our Basic Kit, meaning that you will have to get your own 1/2" or 5/8" circle cutter online, as well as All Purpose glue sticks (not school glue), rolling papers, and lube. We strongly suggest the rice paper rolling papers offered in our kits. Lube can be made easily with 50/50 beeswax and beef tallow, which are on eBay.
The kit comes with the two-piece knob and block for this specific caliber, calibers, or in some cases a specific gun. It also includes the powder dipper or dippers for the correct height of powder, and one funnel, regardless of how many sets you are purchasing.
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.
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 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.
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 Walker kit was engineered for a new manufacture Uberti Walker. There are a ton of Walkers out there, manufactured by Armi San Marco and many eras of Ubertis that may or may not fit our tested bullet, which was the Eras Gone Bullet Molds Walker bullet.
The Eras Gone Walker bullet does not fit in some Walkers, because it gets caught, ever so slightly, on the entry port. Some people have suggested that you should file and reblue your guns entry port. We prefer to use our brass rod tapper to get the bullet started so that it will clear.
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 with the Walker bullet.
Walker Paper Cartridge Former Basic Kit
Yesterday I shot about 3 cylinders of paper cartridges made with this kit. Every one fired without any hang fires. I used the tissue paper for stuffing gift bags to make them.
This kit saved me so much time at the range.
Although I haven't had time to test them on the range, I can say that the cartridges come out factory perfect. The dipper measures out to 40 grains by volume, which isn't a bad load for the Walker.
I WOULD BUY FROM THEM AGAIN
