Q: How should I make a slug of my gun barrel?
A: The best way to take a cast of a two groove (Brunswick style) rifle barrel is do the following:
Put a length of wire, with a hook on the end, into the barrel. Place some rag on top of the hook and push down the barrel approx..2” Pour the lead ( Cerrosafe or whatever material you are using to make the cast), on top of the rag. When cooled pull the slug out using the wire.
Once you have the slug, please send it to:
