Paper patch 45/70 bullets

I have begun to have a serious interest in pp 45/70 bp cartridge. Con anyone tell me how pp compares to grease bullets. That is in the area of accuracy, trajectory and barrel wear and treat.

It’s tit for tat as for the differences. Books can be written to answer your question. Better to ask a single question and don’t ask which is better, lol.

Very little difference between patched and greasers. I find that some patched designs shoot need a few minutes less elevation at long distance and a bit less windage at distance than similar grease groove.

Will the paper patch eliminate leading. If so seems like that would be a pluse.

it will, absolutely.

It is also very stylish, so you look your best on the line.

Plus, it is just more fun.
