    Clarification, I do not want tumble lube grooves on the buckbuster slug, only smooth sided. It is a cool idea on the full bore slug though.

    I consider position sensitivity and extreme spread to be two different issues, although one can effect the other. A 327 federal most certainly can work great loaded to 32 long levels. It's not hard to do at all. 45 colt is supposed to be light...

    I already have 3 full bore diameter shotgun slug molds, plus a full bore diameter round ball, so I have no interest in another as I said. I am only interested in the buckbuster copy, with a .080" base wall plug. That said, I am kind of intrigued...

    .3575" or .358" are the ideal size bullets for that gun. Assuming you are running about a 158 grain bullet, 900 to 1000 fps is a light load, you could get away with straight lead if you wanted, 11 bhn is great.

    what about a nice hollow base boolit once you get the oal down? something like the 445599 would prolly fill the bore nicely?

    Now 327 federal is something I can help with. First my own opinions of ES are always changing. I do not worry about SD, although I often mention it, as my chrony calculates it for me. I am ok with wider ES than many rifle shooters are. 60-70 fps is...

    That's a rather broad question. I can't imagine the pirate looking pistols with no real grip, and no sights to speak of are any good for hunting. On the other end is the target style pistols like the TC scout pistol. At 50 yards my 54 caliber scout...

    No, MN shut down the moose hunting a few years ago. Elk hunting is just a single herd up in Grygla. I hear not as many as you would think apply for the elk tag, but it never interested me. For us common hunters, we have no big game here. The biggest...

    You can have a brand new Henry single shot in 357 magnum for about $370 out the door, taxes and everything. Paying that much or more for an H&R is foolish. If it is an SB1 frame, $175 is fair for one in great condition. On an SB2 frame, I'd go...

    I thought about the maxi hunter, but there just seems to be no source. They are no longer made, and I have never seen a 54 caliber maxi hunter mold, assuming they existed. The maxi ball is far more available, I have a TC mold on the way as we speak....

    I have the TC 1:48" twist, and it shoots a maxi ball really well. I've tried to make a round ball shoot as well, but have not so far. For how popular the maxi ball is, I'm not seeing a lot of description for hunting. This is usually a bad sign....

    This is a design I've heard nothing about, except for a few who really like it. I am seeing two distinct versions. One is the Lyman solid, which appears to cast too small. The other a Hornady hollow base which has mixed reviews. My 54 caliber really...

    It is ridiculous. It is probably the single biggest moment for Minnesota, the time when we even beat out California for stupid ideas. Of course the ban went nation wide just a few years later, but none of it did any good. Arguing against gun control...

    Just to be more clear, I am interested in what is labeled as ".080" base wall" on that drawing for my base pin. While I can understand the interest in a thick walled style "turbo" base, I would second guess a flat top. I had one of mine originally...

    I don't think it would be possible to have an over pressure round bulge like that, not in just one spot. If it was the chamber, you would not be able to extract that round. That is most certainly caused during reloading. Probably not the sizer, more...

    If I am understanding correctly, he is willing to sell extra of the same plug, which you could modify yourself? That sounds like a good plan. I had a feeling the base had to have more taper, no big deal. I want one standard buck buster slug mold...
