Cumbustible Cartridges

Does anyone here make their own paper cartridges? How do you figure out the proper taper for the cartridge? No information i can find says that the bullets were lubed at any time of manufacture, but loads for the enfield rifle as made in india have the bullet/bullet end of the finished cartridge dipped in tallow/bees wax.

And does anyone have any information on the TINFOIL Cartridges made by Colt's cartridge plant in the 18502-early civil war?

Colt charged 25 dollars for a gun that only took 12.50-13.00 to build, Remington charged 15 for a gun that took 12 or so to build.
