    Unless it's a Typo, it looks like we got bumped up from 15 to a 20 minimum. It's going to be a while.

    I'm surprised more of the slug shooting crowd hasn't gotten in on this one. I haven't bought a mould in quite a while but this one has me excited! I wasn't going to pass this one up!

    If the full bore version runs as well I'll likely splurge and get it too. I like the design.

    I actually prefer the idea of full bore but a guy can't have enough options... wad slug and full bore pretty much covers it. If you want easy loading just dropping a slug in a wad is easy and also works for using factory rounds with shot dumped out... assuming the wad petals are reasonably close to fit. That might not give optimum accuracy but it is quick, easy and cheap and for those SHTF types an option they shouldn't be without so jump in and buy a couple of moulds you guys! The more the merrier! If this works like the original then with good wad fit and/or planned obturation it should be quite accurate.

    Full bore is more likely (in my mind) to give best accuracy but requires custom wad columns of some type and lubing so a little more work.

    Get them both and cover your bases I say!

    I'm going to make a new nose form and HB pin for my full bore mould and see if I can duplicate the Buckbuster close enough then play a bit. I'd still like the Mihec full bore brass mould too though.

    I don't even know what to think. The design already had to be changed so that it could be casted rather than swaged. Not a huge deal. Then out of left field came this full bore version, now the guys out of the loop like newcastter are confused. Plus now we have a tumble lube wad slug. MP molds has made smooth bullets with the same lube groove cherry many times before. I don't understand why he cant make a smooth slug now. Nobody said anything about a full bore slug in the first place. It was supposed to be a BUCKBUSTER clone.

    The idea of a full bore version is not a good one. It already exists! Accurate molds 73-770SU.

    msm I am glad you started the discussion that turned into this group buy and I won't disagree that the idea of a Buckbuster clone was a great idea and I would have been happy with the smooth Buckbuster clone you suggested. No problem there at all. I would have been happy with that.

    However, I am a smoothbore shooter and like the idea of a full bore version as well.

    The Buckbuster should be a good full bore slug for smoothbore as well. The Accurate 73-770SU might work well for rifled gun but not so much for smoothbore.

    The tumble lube grooves shouldn't detract from the wad slug and are a benefit for the full bore version.

    I'd like both.

    Again thanks for initiating this and I guess I have to say I'm sorry it deviated from your vision but I have to think the grooved wad slug will be just as good as a smooth version.

    Just my opinion.
