Ruger Old Army with a conversion cylinder you can shoot .45ACP ball ammo out of it.

Other than loading the ball with the short lever it's a true joy to shoot. Kid picked up the blued 8" barrel version and it is too. Only real PITA is getting the tiny caps on the nipples.

I want to work up a bunch of paper loads for it.

Heck, I even got my mom to shoot it (first time ever)...

Is it a 0.31 caliber revolver? I've been working on my BP stuff past few months, paper cartridges, etc. After messing with homemade dowels, rolling paper, etc, I ended up ordering two Manley Cartridge Formers, one for 0.454 RB and the other 0.33 RB. He made me the 0.33 RB former custom (no extra charge), just had to write him an email. Plenty of youtube videos on his former (search for Cliff Manley).

Thanks for the idea. Mine are .44 cal, .451 bullets. Didn't really want to get into melting lead but...

I have a Rodgers and Spence .44. Love it.
They make a cap loader that I haven't tried but should keep caps organized and make capping easier. Try it and let us know.

The cartridge former is to make the paper cartridge and mount a conical or round ball. You don't have to cast your own balls, 0.451 balls are easy to find.
