Default serious buck and ball load Q

all sexual innuendo aside, when loading these, ball on top of slug right?

Default Good question...

I can barely get my #1 Buck loads to group well... but then I can't buy those cool flight control wads either.

If you do get them working well, please come back and share your experience with us.

I have found shotgun world dot com full of great information on shotshell loading. The last time I tried to logon, I got a malicious website notice from my antivirus software, hopefully they have cleaned that up.

Good luck.

My 00 buck loads group well out of my 18 1/2 " mossberg 500 cylinder choke using 32.5 gr HS6 WAA hulls and wads.

I was just on shotgunworld forum, no issues, except that their search function blows.

was thinking of buying the LEE 4buck mold in the future.

I load my #1 Buck with Blue Dot or Longshot and SP12 wads. I have not given HS-6 a try yet. They group just ok and it really doesn't matter whether it is my 18" Mossy or my 28" Beretta, I stick with cyl chokes in all of them, frankly the chokes really don't seem make a great difference with the buck loads. In any case, the Remington managed recoil #00 loads group better than my loads and the Federal Flight Control wad rounds MUCH BETTER.

Winchester pdx1 has buck over the ball

Did you cast your buck and ball, if so can I ask how hard your lead is?

Well I loaded some with buck on top of slug and slug on top of buck.
I will post after I shoot and compare at different distances.

I did cast my own. I do not have a brinell lead hardness tester. My lead source is wheel weights and range lead. So harder than pure lead, I skimmed out some zinc off the top when pouring ingots. Lee says to use pure lead for their slugs. I don't have a source for pure lead. If I had a different mold I figure I could use that zinc for some 000 buck instead of throwing it in the recycle bin.
