Do tell... old post bump for more info...I bought a saiga last year and was thinking about starting to reload shotgun again. I went over to dig out my 25 year old MEC from the attic and its GONE! My dad thinks he Goodwilled it. WTF. Anyway I was thinking of doing some casting out of any lead I can scrounge so I'm curious if this is just lead slugs or do they have a special kick?
