    Federal papers..How They

    Just read this month's Handloader magazine. It has an excellent article on Federal paper hulls, how they are made, what advantage they might offer, some of the tricks and secrets involved in making them. It ws a great read...thought some of you might be interested.

    The Federal building in Vandalia had a wall display on the making of a paper shell, showing each step.

    I would imagine it was moved to Sparta, very interesting.
