    Interesting theory, ranchdog! An easy proof of concept might be to fill the space between the "waist" of the slug and the wad with some kind of granulated buffer or even lube. Anything to provide support for the wad petals might help the wads stay...

    I don't butcher many deer, but I clean plenty of fish, and use a knife at work a dozen times a day or more. I believe I've found the cheapest, most expedient system for maintaining a scary-sharp, dry-shave comfortably edge through hard use. The...
