With paper patch, you clean your bore shiny clean every time you shoot a round. You can shoot soft lead bullets at jacketed velocities getting impressive expansion. But you have to buy a custom mold that drops at .301 or .302 if you want to shoot in a .311. Waterproof the exposed patching with paste wax.

However, patching in time consuming. If you only wrap for hunting, you should be OK. In an hour I can wrap 20-30 bullets and do it right. In an hour, I can powder coat thousands of bullets. The learning curve for me was a long one. But if you have time and attention to detail, go for it.
