    Interesting find

    I know this is not exactly about casting but thought it interesting.

    Got these at a gun show last year. Had 8 boxes and I bought them all.
    Slug is cast and with wad weighs just over one ounce.
    Diameter is .728"
    All loads shown are for fold crimps.

    Hello Nhithaca, Thanks for bringing back old memories of the Brenneke slug as component, can you please post a close up of the actual loading data, sure appreciate your help.
    By the time I zoomed in I could not read it.

    Yes, absolutely a great find! I'd have bought them all if I'd been there (and beat you to them)! Last time I saw Brenneke slugs for reloading was back in the 70's. It is my favourite slug!

    I am trying to find some factory loaded Brennekes to test out to see if they shoot as well as I remember but they are scarce here.

    Yes, please repost load data close up. it is all good stuff to have.
