    10 Gauge Slug Bullet

    So after the success of the Ball, I am moving onto Full Brass with a Foster style Slug / Paradox Bullet.

    I have made the Slug mould myself, designing it in 3D (taking advantage of the volume setting to ensure I know its exact grains when cast in lead.) I used a round ball model for reference and am currently trying a couple of different designs. My load so far is the same as the round ball, but dipping these in wax to fill the lube grooves which when I push them in shaves off the excess and holds them in.

    It makes bloomin big holes where I point it at 25 meters, but I need to work on the column stack and powder load a little.

    Lol! Awsome! My browning gold national wild turkey federation 10 gauge will will shoot fist size groups with a turkey choke at 75 yards with federal 2.5. Oz slugs and look like a silver dollar when they flatten out. It's a beast.

    Divide the number of grains in a pound by the number of ounces in a pound and multiply by 2.5 and you have your answer.

    Your right. It's been a long time since I looked at them. I'm thinking of the old Remington turkey shot I used in them.

    Tong, what are you shooting them in? I have an old 1800's 10 gauge 2 7/8" Charles Daly side by side that is missing one hammer I'd like to load some black powder loads for. Hopefully I'll end my quest for a hammer some day .

    Had one 20 years ago with a removable choke tube. It gave me a belting like the 10 gauge browning pumps which all went down the road. My semi auto 10 kicks less than a 12 gauge.

    Mr.T,

    Is your h&r 10ga threaded for a choke tube? I have a 24" h&r 10ga with a screw in cylinder choke. I use it to launch 740g HB slugs that I cast. I am curious if you have a "choked" gun.

    I like your design, in my mind, keeping the slug on the short side is a good thing.

    I'm afraid its not .. its the 24" fully open cylinder barrel. I think it's a Slugster or something like that. It's very thick walled. (no rifling)

    I haven't done any real testing yet, but i was worried the short stubbyness would make it tumble. (I was happy with the round ball but it wont sit easly in place in the brass and I'm not crimping it) Time will tell.
