    Dixie Slugs makes a Tri-Ball load that looks pretty cool. Has anyone tried it?

    I have made my own tri-ball with (3) .600 lead ball. The one's I made kick like a mule but made a good pattern.

    I worked up my own data. I started low low an worked up from there. I found a load that was the same weight in my books an went from there. Be safe when working up your loads.

    So I take it, you are using 3.5" load data. What wad are you using and what kind of patterns are you getting?

    Ther's a guy on YouTube that just drills the appropriate size hole,about 1/2 deep in a board and fills with led.Then loads 2 of these in his shells.And makes bolo rounds with a little ball chain.
    They work awesome too
    He does a wax load too.Fills the shot with wax.It doesn't come apart until it hits.
