I'll keep an eye out for you. I breath a lot of book dust. Here are a few books and articles for you.
Paul Matthews’s first printing of his book was titled: “The Practical Paper Patched Bullet” and then as the: “The Paper Jacket.”
Additional information is available in his book: “Forty Years With the .45-70.”
Handloader Magazine has compiled a number of cast bullet articles in the “Handloaders bullet Making Annual Vol. 1 & 2 from 1990 and 1991. Paul Mathews article on paper patching bullets for the 458 Winchester in the “Cast Bullet Special Edition” is worth looking for.
Wolfe Publishing also reprinted the Ideal Handbook of Useful Information for Shooters from 1894. You will find some good useful information in this book.
The NRA’s “Cast Bullets” and the “Cast Bullet Supplement” reprint the articles from Col. E. H. Harrison and as I said is the definitive study for the modern paper patch shooter.
The Cast Bullet Association has put out a booklet for its member titled: “Cast Bullets for Beginners and Experts.” This book was compiled by Joe Brennan who also has a Yahoo group named Cast Bullet Book which will give you some useful information.
The Paper Patch Bullet by Randolph Wright is useful for the basics but is tailored for the black powder cartridge shooter.
Handloading Ammunition by J. R. Mattern and the Complete Guide to Handloading by Phil Sharpe both will give you some good information. Earl Naramore in his Handloading Ammunition and the Priciples and Practices of Reloading Ammunition cover the subject in its basic form.
Modern American Rifles A.C. Gould pg. 282,289,291,
Keiths Rifles For Large Game Elmer Keith, 1946 pg. 284
For articles which have not been re-published in special edition books the recent one from Mike Venturino “Loading and Shooting Paper Patch Bullets” from the July 2006 issue of Shooting Times will give you some good information on hollow base patched bullets for use in black powder rifles.
I can think of a number of articles which are not on this list but here are a few to get your research. Dug these out for someone else a few years ago but cannot find the link.
