How to slug a bore  ! 

Mark your latest video I have found really informative, as a newbie to lever action Winchesters I find that your videos are brilliant.

I have read about slugging a bore but your videos made it easy to see and do.

please keep making them I’m already looking forward to seeing the next one

Thanks so much Coldweld!  I’ll soon be casting, sizing and loading for that 1895 I used in this episode.  And, of course, shooting.

I’ve been out of commission, recovering from a recent surgery and haven’t been able to do much with the channel.  I’m hoping to get a couple of new episodes posted soon.

I don’t think I remembered to share a link for that last one to the forum.  Here you go Chuck:

Thanks Mark.  I would hate to have missed any of your videos.  Can’t wait for the next one.  Never attempted to pour my own.

Mark, 

  Thank you for doing these videos, I am a new WACA member and have just discovered them. So far I have watched all I can find here and on you tube, some of stuff I already knew but mostly I have learned a wealth of information. Please keep up the great work and I’ll keep up the learning.

Thanks guys!  I enjoy doing these videos, but they take far more work, time and planning than I ever imagined.  It’s nice to hear that people are enjoying them.  My sincere thanks to those who are watching them. I have several more in the works when I get the time to finish them.  Spring’s a busy time here on the ranch.  Mark

Great video! Never tried rolling a round ball to make a slug. Great idea for the bigger bores. I sacrificed a OO Buck shotshell to the cause awhile back and the .33 pellets work great up to 35 caliber. I put one on an anvil and smack it with a hammer for the 32-35 bores. Looking forward to the casting videos, looks like a pretty impressive furnace.
