Federal currently load 12 gauge trap loads with paper cases, they are very popular with shooters in the USA,as they are reported to give somewhat softer recoil than similar loadings in plastic cases.Have not seen any on the NZ market but hopefully some will be imported in future.

Many years ago I purchased 50 cases of Federal paper case paper wad trap 7 off a cruise ship , they used to have trap shooting off the stern , then throw the paper empties into the sea . They didn't have any passengers interested in shooting so they dumped off the ammo and guns super cheap to get rid of the hassle of the paperwork needed in each new country and port .
It was great ammo patterned well with mild recoil and the powder burnt with a distinctive pleasant smell

Nice score!.Would love to see some of this ammo in NZ I believe it would have a market as many of us remember and prefer the old paper hulls.
