    Have cast and shot all three of the slugs indicated above. For me the Lyman 525 gives the best results in a rifled barrel. The 1 oz Lee gives the worst results. Shot a few animals with slugs but never at more than 75 yards.

    Get a short chambered barrel in 308 and finish the chamber with a finishing reamer. Several companies sell the short chamber barrel that will screw into receiver.
