Slugging a barrel – Did I do it right???

In this video I go through a process of slugging a barrel for my .45 ACP.  This is my first attempt ever at this process.  I am asking for help in verifying the process as much as anything else.  Please take a moment and let me know it this is correct or if I have done something wrong.  Comments are encouraged…  I’ll even take derogatory remarks.

Two points:

  1. The slug was not concentric when it came out, does that mean I need to do it again with a larger piece of lead?
  2. The measurement at the widest point of the slug was 0.450″.  What would you recommend sizing cast bullets too?

Thanks in advance for all your help..

As always, thanks for watching and until next time, have fun outside..
