Is anyone dry patching their bullets? Seems like it would prevent any paper from sticking to bullet..& permit loading right after patching.

You might want to go over to the Cast Boolits web site, check out the forum on paper patching with smokeless powder, and look up 303 Guy's posts. He dry patches and uses a tiny dab of glue to keep it from unwrapping. I paper patch for both my muzzle loader and some smokeless cartridges, but I wet wrap. The paper looses some strength while wet, but I find it easier to do. Also, check out the stickies on that forum. You will be surprised at the wealth of information. Brodie
I usually use damp patch, but after reading Handloader article by Ross Seyfreid on the .360 2 1/4” BPE, he uses .38 revolver bullets patched..I decided to give it a try..only template close was for .40 cal. I thought this would be way too long..but if patch was barely damp..patch edges nearly touched. Dry patching left around .05” gap. Don't have a .360...yet! but I know now I can feed it.
a few years ago somebody tried using sticky address labels ... anybody tried this ? it makes so much sense ...
i wonder if some of the sticky label falls off, some doesn't ...
interesting article on paper patching in latest FS ; but after reading it 3 times, i ain't got it ... anybody interpret for me ??
Veral, who is still one of our moderators but forgot about us a long time ago ;):
I wonder why the lube doesn't affect the label's glue...
