It seems as though you are saying I could dispense with the paper at the bottom of the case (over the primer) without much effect. You also appear to be using a rather traditional BP bore lube (Beeswax and Crisco) on the bullet.
Wait a minute....No I have that wrong. You are soaking the cookie in that lube and using SPG on the bullet.
I would hope to be able to use the same lube on both the bullet and the wad and I would hope to make it.
Okay....No nickel, but can you tell me why? (Keep in mind I am new at cartridges) Hard on the pistol? Hard to load? Wrong for the period?
