    Personally I always likes the looks of the Cutts Compensator chokes and also the Pachmayr Pow-R-Pac which was similar to the Cutts. They are much beefier than the screw in choke tubes, though I guess that is more of a perception on my part that the...

    I suspect the change in image is a coding problem on Willie's end.

    Everyone knows a cast boolit will just bounce off a deer! C'mon, man! Good kill.

    You must be doing something wrong. My cast loads are equal or better than jacketed.

    Google can be your friend. I just bought a car, and did searches for recalls, gas mileage, customer reviews, repair issues on several dozen cars. It saves a lot of heartbreak getting feedback from the mechanics who work on them, and the people...

    Rp-: I am not speaking form loads of experience with Lee slugs here but I have both the 1 oz. and 7/8 oz. moulds. First, the 1 oz. mould cast perfectly right from the get go. Accuracy from cylinder bore smoothbore at 50 yards was not as good...

    I got to get back to this one too! My results were mediocre but I had wad failure using CSD wads. If it works for BT I'll try it! I got to get an order in to BPI for supplies so I'll be adding these items. What was your powder charge BT? ...

    I doubt you will get 3 balls in a 2 3/4" hull. 2 balls yes and I've done it. I used CSD wads and had rather significant wad failure. James Gates posted that the Precision Reloading TUPRW123 (IIRC) was the only wad that would stand up to Tri-Ball...

    Yeah she said in post #93 that she used pure lead. I have never cast a ball for shotgun out of pure lead. Normally I use range scrap or clip on wheelweights so moderately hard. In fact most slugs I cast are WW or range scrap. I wouldn't have...

    It is possible that the soft ball flattened out and didn't penetrate well. I wouldn't have thought it at that low velocity but...? Soft balls from muzzleloaders do flatten out pretty good but then they are normally travelling at 1800 to over 2000...

    Well, looks like you've got good accuracy at least to 40 yards and not bad at 60 yards. So it looks like you are good with the 0.690" ball and your wads. You can ignore my lengthy post above then! I'm a bit surprised that big 'ol ball didn't do...

    Tatu: Unfortunately Lee does not make many convenient size ball moulds for 12 ga. 0.690" is it for "bore size" balls and the 0.600" for Tri-Ball or two ball loads. Lyman and RCBS make 0.662", 0.678", 0.690", 0.715" and 0.735" ball moulds but...

    You have re-invented the wheel! This has been done for many years to make lubed bullets nicer to handle. A search of the board should bring up several topics from years ago.

    Now that's entertainment! I have seen hand drawn pics of balls like that in old catalogues/brochures but never seen a photo of a real one! How old is the mould? What is actual cast size at the bands? It wouldn't work well in rifled gun but...

    I believe all these slugs were shot from rifled gun but the two I sent BT are designed for smoothbore... the smooth sided TC slug is a hollow base Foster type cloned from turbo1889's 10 ga. slug I mentioned to you from a mould I made and the short...

    There are three chamberings that should last for eternity. They are the .243, the .308, and the .358 Win. Why? They are all based on the same brass, all are easy to reform to the desired design, and with the three, you can hunt the world.

    Probably not needed, you are correct. A couple years ago, I did a restock job on an original. I had a tough time getting the cheek piece inlay out. I got it heated enough to pop out, and it appeared to have a pitch and asphaltum adhesive holding it...
