    .216 slugs were made today, all the same weights as the .217 and .218. Just enough to do some testing and get a little feedback. Hoping some of the choked barrels will like the smaller diameter.

    We expect production to start next week when we finish up overseas orders. Any request as to what weights people interested would like to see available first?

    Id love to see .216 from 30 to 34 grains ,with a smaller hollow point.

    The .26.8 and 28.6 seemed to load a bit hard , hard and alot of drag pushing threw my barrels with a dowel  , I resized all of them down to .216  and they loaded a bit easier and they all shot better groups in the 3 guns I tested them in which were , Taipan veteran – Kaliber cricket ,Ed gun R5m ,

    Id also like to buy pure lead slugs in .22 caliber  but I understand with tin they have a better finish and are much less likely to become damaged during shipping because they are harder .

    LOU I don't use any tin at all – zero.  You only use tin for casting, no need to use in the swage process.  There is a small amount of antimony which is needed in the high speed process but the BHN is very low as there is very little in the mix.  I do have a 31.2 grain slug coming in all sizes as soon as we can free up our machine to make them.  The hollow point is not going to become smaller though as that request is of the minority crowd and we have to make what the 8/10 want to buy so sorry about that request.

    Most likely the hard pushing is because my dish base is very shallow so your probe pushes the slugs into the rifling further but even more a factor is the shape of these slugs is short and fat and not as long as skinny as my previous designs which is what the big boys copied.  We will have those coming too like our originals, we have a 25 cal version ready we just need time on the press to make it.

    I’d like to see the 20.2, 24.8 and 27.5 HP DB. Should do well in guns that can shoot the RD Monster pellets well.

    thanks NOE , I did mean any materal that made a slug harder  , and yes I noticed HN load easier and correct , they are a longer slug so less of an angle is easier to load , It is hard to make a slug to fit every gun , some the mags are shallow some bores not all same like powder burners , Your slugs are great and you keep innovating new and improved ones ,LOU
