Question Paper wrapping .452 bullets for .458 45-70. Crazy as it sounds?

I guess there are folks who use pistol bullets paper wrapped to achieve the .458 bullet diameter on reloads. Not sure I'd want to join this party, but I'm told it's cheap and easy vs. getting 45-70 bullets (Hornaday, etc). I'd love to hear the collective wisdom of the forum on this one. Thanks.

Larry Potterfield of Midway has a You Tube video on making paper patched bullets, very informative.
Here is a whole page of paper patching, enjoy.
