Default Re: The 16 gauge French Cape Gun

I got the paper hulls from Graf & Sons today. The Gualandi slug-and-carrier fit just a little looser than they do in the unfired plastic hulls. About the same as the fired plastic hulls - snug, but can be seated by hand. I'll load some up tomorrow if I can get to it, and see what they chronograph.
