    Nice one mate, can't wait to give it a try. What ammo are you going to use for your next batch?

    I find the idea of these bolo rounds fascinating, if I was loading slugs Id do a couple of these to try out.

    Maybe a dyneema tether would work better than that wire holding them together.

    @leighos - I ended up getting some Eley Olympic Blues to try instead of the falcons... might have been a mistake
    Still waiting for my roll crimper to arrive but cut one of the Eley's open for a look and I don't think it will be able to take a roll crimp without trimming the petals as they sit right up under the existing star crimp, the falcons had about 5-6mm of side wall above the wad after trimming (due to a shorter wad I guess)

    Consider myself too smart for that. Have seen some strained guns due to cut cases..
