Last summer, Svarog Bullet Mold company out of Russia reached out to me and asked if I would review their new slug mold called the Botfly. I’ve always been impressed with the quality and ease of use with the Svarog’s mold, so I jumped at the opportunity. When the mold came in, I jumped on […]
James (Loads of Bacon) at The Reloaders Network has created a 3D printed jig for effective joining of the Russian slugs with their proprietary tail wads. Alignment is essential to success with the Russian slugs, and this jig makes it easy. Let’s see what James has come up with…. FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting videos on YouTube […]
When our reload slugs look good, are solid, and rival factory ammo, we have the best chance at getting performance and accuracy. And the shotgun slug crimp is critical to the success of the ammo. Let’s discuss this feature and make a recommendation for a good road to success… FortuneCookie45LCFortuneCookie45LC started posting videos on YouTube […]

This video documents my experiments with making shotgun slugs by compacting “loess” clay in a hydraulic press, mixed with a little powder coating powder to act as a binder. The slugs didn’t end up working very well, but it was an interesting experiment, and it is possible that something like this might find certain niche […]
This video shows my third iteration on the “shooting star” shotgun slug concept. TheIdahoanShowIdaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance.

Back Burner stuff, things I'll be working on later, shotgun slug molds, etc.
The concept of a ballistic rope dart is relatively simple: the projectile consists of a solid metal core with a length of rope or cord attached to the base. For loading, the rope is wound around the core, so that the windings act as a temporary sabot. After the projectile leaves the barrel, the windings […]

Here is my first short video about the MEC 600 Slugger I bought month ago. The video is more a “first view”. I will make another video showing the reloading process with the MEC 600 Slugger in detail asap. With the MEC 600 Slugger you can reload shotgun slugs with an roll crimp like factory […]
This video documents some testing I did to get a baseline for shotgun slug performance in my homemade GEFRRSn 12-gage, so that I would have a basis of comparison for testing custom homemade slugs in the future.
