    I think I am using the Accurate Molds 56-450S. It is a heeled bullet. I tried ones before without the heel and when you go to push the paper cartridge into battery with the "plunger" (Breech block), the paper bulges in the middle like a whiskey barrel and binds up. The heeled design allows the paper to stay a hair smaller in diameter than the chamber and it no longer binds against the sides.
