    best i can recommend is the lyman 525 slug for loading in a shotcup. The mold is iron and slug would weigh about 3/4 oz in zinc. hmmmmm..... gimme a couple of weeks and i might can give you a report on that.

    No good for smoothbore. For balls I believe the .678 is the best fit in a wadcup (Longbow can tell you) but that would only weigh about 5/8 oz in zinc so prolly too light. gotta have iron mold too.
