    Ajay, thank you for your encouraging comments. I can only say ... that you blazed the trail ... and I got to where I am because I had your trail to follow. So, I am hoping that documenting my efforts here might help somebody else eventually ... and to pick up the trail again and extend it ...

    Well, I am at the point where the load that I developed works pretty nicely.
    I know that I can hit consistently a 4 -6" circle at 50 meters with that load (slug).
    And the buckshot pattern at closer ranges is not too bad neither.

    I now need to find a slug that can replace the Sellier & Bellot one. The Sellier & Bellot slug shoots nice and does not take up much hull space .... but it is a relatively expensive solution ...

    And originally I thought it to be a temporary solution just for my testing/learning ...

    So, here is what I am looking for:

    - an accurate full bore 12ga slug that I can cast myself
    - a mechanism to center the slug in the bore (ball, attached wad, other?)
    - the slug cannot take up much hull space, so long tail wads will not work
    - needs to be an 1oz slug

    If anyone has any suggestions, then please chime in ....

    Longbow, .... ahhhhhhhh great! I will have a look at those ..... thank you!
