I recently retired another pair of steel-toe boots, and, as is my custom, decided to give them a ballistic send-off.

I got started reloading so that I could shoot my Saiga 12 more. The main thing I wanted was cheap, good slugs. Since then I’ve cast many thousand Lee slugs, and loaded a few of the Lyman Diabolo. These were always a compromise, since they are not bore riders. They are good, and I don’t […]

As a follow-up to my oval-choke experiment, I tried making a shotgun barrel that tapers from a circular cross-section to a cross-shaped bore at the muzzle, as documented in this video.
