How To Use The Black Powder Revolver Cartridge Maker

1) Place the paper under the tube and then wrap it around. Remember that the glue needs to be on the opposite end and facing the inside. Moisten the glue on the paper and roll.

2) The section of the roll that is not on the tube, press with a finger and flatten the surface. After that, fold the bend by half a turn, apply the adhesive and press on the side of the paper roll.

3) Place the prepared roll in the die with the instrument. Squeeze both clips to unlock the piston, hold the funnel and then remove the piston.

4) At this stage, first pour the black powder and then the filler - Important, do not mix the order of the materials!

5) Use the piston to beat the black powder and filler. Grab the funnel to pull it up allowing the load to fill the inside of the roll. It is important to lock the tool on the piston with clips. The load inside the roll can be re-crushed by the instrument so that it is more compacted.

6) Place the lead ball inside the roll and push it with the instrument until it senses resistance - In the case of the lead balls being above the dimensions (eg.457), it is recommended to wrap the tube with tape to increase the dimension of the roll.

7) The cartridge with the ball should be closed by twisting the tip of the roll. It serves to protect it against spillage as well as to push lead ball to the cartridge.

8) The inside of the finished cartridge is condensed which prevents mixing of black powder with the filler - It is important to protect the paper against tearing on the surface of the roll!
