English term or phrase:paper cartridge/paper of shot/fitted a brass cap to the nipple
He looked to the cylinder of the LeMat’s. Six loads left out of the nine, and the shot barrel fired. He took a paper cartridge from his pocket and bit the end off it and let the powder run into the big barrel. Then he pushed the paper of shot into the barrel and rammed it home with the little ramrod and fitted a brass cap to the nipple. He stood square to the world and waited.
