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.

For me paper patch has shot better than greaser. That is to say my paper patch scores are better than my greaser scores.

Everyone knows Paper Patch guys always get the prettiest girls.. You know because our bullets look cool...
I like paper patching. It is time consuming but heck what other than cleaning your rifle is fast using black powder? Cleaning cases take a long time, weighing charges and using a drop tube takes a long time. Even using a blow tube in between shots takes a while. Shoot BP is work so you might as well shoot PP...
