check your p.m. dennis
I may be a little slow. What is p.m. other than post meridian?
By the way......any lead pot like lee or lyman will work fine for your sabot slugs....I've made hundreds from lee and lyman moulds. Use medium hardness lead. I've found that straight wheelweights are a little hard and don't let the rifling grip the slug through the wad. 50/50 wheelweights and pure lead work pretty well. Get the mould really hot and don't feel bad if you have to toss the first thirty or so out for wrinkles, voids, and so on. Clean out all the oil with denatured alcohol, smoke the mould cavity with kitchen matches and pressure cast the slugs (hold the mould tight against the spout so the pressure of the lead in the pot fills the cavity).
