In praise of pa­per

The Field - - Letters -

I re­fer to Mark Crich­ton Mait­land’s let­ter [Au­gust is­sue]. Most of my shoot­ing has been done with vin­tage guns, dat­ing to a time when pa­per cases were the norm.

Mr Mait­land quite rightly refers to the days when pa­per-cased car­tridges were sub­ject to swelling but with mod­ern var­nishes this is a thing of the past. I have shot with Hull Car­tridge Three Crowns for the past 30 years, which are avail­able in var­i­ous loads. You do pay a bit more for pa­per cases but noth­ing repli­cates the smell of a pa­per car­tridge as op­posed to plas­tic. Stephen Ede
