Applying a Paper Patch to a Bullet

How to Roll on Patch. Lay the patch on a smooth board or table with the point of angles toward and from you; have point of angle toward you to the right; let the whole of the angle project over the edge of the board or table (this will leave the point of patch free, not stuck down to the table); then place the bullet squarely upon the patch (base to the left), letting as much of the paper project beyond the base as you desire. (See drawing.) The angle projecting toward you can then be lapped up over the bullet, as shown. When in that position, place the forefinger upon the point of patch and bullet, and with a forward push roll the bullet up on the patch. You will soon perceive whether you are rolling it on true; if not, roll back, readjust the bullet, and try again. A little practice will soon enable you to acquire the art so that you will do it correctly every time. This is the method of patching bullets at the ammunition factories. This work is done by girls, who become expert, some of them patching over twelve thousand per day. The regular factory patched bullets have a cavity at the base. When patch is rolled on, the paper should project about two-thirds of the diameter of the ball and the projecting paper is twisted over the base and pressed into the cavity. With the flat base bullet (without cavity) allow the patch to project only one-third of the diameter of the ball and turn the edge of paper over inward, and press the base of ball, when so patched, flat upon a table.
