Thanks for visiting my site! I'm the owner of Paper Cartridges LLC, and I've been making (and researching) historically correct Civil War era bullets and cartridges for the last 15 years. In addition to making the products sold here, I am a historical researcher and author, having written several books on 19th century arms, ammunition, logistics, and military history, including The Destroying Angel, The English Cartridge, and Like Fire and Powder. I am also a prior enlisted U.S. Army Reserve officer with 12 years of service. I have had the privilege of commanding two awesome Army Reserve sustainment companies, and two overseas deployments in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Spartan Shield.
