Daler-Rowney 28lb clear translucent paper

Post by Gunnison » Mon Dec 03, 2018 1:28 pm

I was wondering through the local Walmart art section and noticed this translucent cellulose tracing paper. Has anybody ever tried this paper for patching bullets? It seems pretty tough when trying to tear it. I've looked it up on the web, but don't understand all of what I'm reading. At present I use Wilton's cooking parchment. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

I believe the thickness is .0017. I don't play with micrometers very much. In my job 1/4" is close enough. LOL

I have seen this paper or something like it in the campus book/art store. I haven't tried it myself. It looks like super tough stuff. Give it a go and let us know. It might be just the ticket for shooting with a dirty barrel.

Will do, but it may not till Spring. It's getting hard to find places to shoot this time of year. Welcome to winter in the Rockies! LOL
