shots were for grouping not bullseye, at 50 yard, did a few shots, same result, there all over, I think I know the problem, was this die made based on a certain riffle? I noticed it is small for my texan, I will use my calipers to measure diameter
, need to try different weights, size is right on
Gilbert, Try making consistent weight slugs as seen in my videos. And check for irregularities at the base of the bullet It may throw off the bullet.
Ken, I will mess around with different weights, 80, 90 100gn, I will find the sweet spot.

You may need a 2 ton arbor press for the .30 cal.
Ok so I received 20ft lead wire from rotometals, And I have made close to 40 slugs, I been cutting the wire at a length that’s averaging 65.5, some at 67, 64, but most of them at 65.5 grain, I separated the 65.5, these are the RN and Inspected every single one of them for deformities, and so far they all look good, will be testing for groups soon
Also I will be ordering a crony, I think I am shooting them way to fast.
Let me know Gilbert.
Gilbert, There is an update. before that tell me which all slugs your gun loves and what shapes are its bases.
This slug is too small for the texan.
The texan is cambered in caliber .308 and uses a .300" bore diameter and .308" grove diameter with 1/14" twist rate.
You will need bullets that have a diamter of .308" or 7.82mm.
.300" is way too small!
