I find the Lee 7/8 ounce slug more accurate than the one ounce
Seems to be general consensus on that

I find that interesting, too, since (aerodynamically) the opposite should be true.

The 7/8 slug will self set nose down on a table. The 1oz lays on its side. I believe the 7/8 flys like a shuttlecock because it’s front heavy.

Yes the Lee 7/8 is top heavy and that keeps it nose forward in flight, the 1 oz will sometimes tumble in flight and act erratic.

69 caliber round ball also works well!!

The .69 caliber ball is too large
Perfect size is .678
A .680 ball weighs 474 grains with pure lead
Close enough to 1 1/8 ounce loads

This is correct, my bad, Im use to my 1842 Harpers Ferry musket. its called a 69 caliber but in reality it .678. Military muskets run all over the place! go figure! but I use the same mold for my shotgun


and incase anyone is wondering...….NO hollow base slugs don't work good out of a smooth bore musket.

The 1 oz. key slug isn't a longer version of the 7/8 oz. key slug?
No wonder it doesn't fly as well.
Any kind of "Foster-type" has to be nose heavy. That's how it works!

You use a folded or roll crimp? I picked up the roll crimp tool for my drill press but haven't had time to mold any of the Lee key drive slugs or the "pellet" style from NOE... Also have a round-ball molds to try to old pumpkin ball or "buck and ball" for both 20g and 12g. So many molds, so little time.

I use Remington accutip with the Remington super slugger. Gaurenteed 2” groups at 200 yards. Recovered the slug on one deer (killed 5 in 2 years). All were clean through. The one I found was about 15 yards past laying in the snow covered in hair.

I feel I should already know this, but....The Accu-Tip in the Super Slugger is a sabot round fired through a rifled barrel...Correct?

Winchester 15 rounds value box
12-Gauge 2-3/4" 1 ounce Rifled Lead Slugs with Super-X.

Pros- relatively low cost, groups very well out of my shotguns.
Cons- Penetration (wouldn't be my first choice in grizz territory) vs other brands.
