    Thanks for the explanation. Still don't fully comprehend the CP. Is that a computer generated value? The relationship between the CG and CP? What is optimal? Or is there an optimal? And does this change with the type of bullet profile? IE:...

    Barrels tend to be oversize, mine leaded badly @356, go to 357 or 358 size. In spite of the leading, it shot the Lee 120TC well to 35 yds.

    I must have a misunderstanding of Center of Pressure as to my mind the CP is at the rear end of the bullet or where the push is coming from. How is Center of Pressure established? Also the description of angle of attack seems incorrect as a...

    Guys, Sheesh has it right. Also after dropping some of my slugs many times they always hit nose first meaning the CG is definitely forward. Also LB's point about walking away from a Round Ball hit is spot on, and you can consult with the British...

    Yeah the picture sucked. It looked better on Ebay and it shows the heavy rifling in this barrel. I'll take a better one when I get it. I don't know where Hastings barrels are made, but this one is from Browning/Miroku. The other source was...

    Yes, setting the wad pressure was done on a bathroom scale. I never did do that. The main reason I think they stopped making the hand tools is because they are very hard to get a consistent crimp with. I finally got a MEC Wad guide and use that...

    Yes the "replicator" is the way of the future. We saw it on Star Trek 40 years ago and now it's reality as is just about every other device they predicted. Can't wait for Warp Drive as then we'll be able to leave this rock. Randy

    One thing to consider here is "wished for accuracy" versus "real world accuracy" and is what you are getting sufficient for what you intend to use the slugs for? In the real world very few older hunting rifles would do much better than 3" at 100...

    If I get my Rifled barrel for my A5 they will get tested. But I have an idea about the wads.... Mike, you are complaining that the bases of the wads collapse? Why not fill the wad's "strut area" with hot glue? That would essentially make...
