Will a bone stock .25 Marauder push any of your slugs well?  Or is that a task reserved to a gun that's been tweaked to have far more power?

I have only shot a hopped up Marauder with them and they shot 39 grain slugs nice.  I would imagine a 34 grain slug would do OK.  If you can push 25 grain pellets around 900 or little faster then 34 grain slug will do OK out of it.  The thing with a slug is they have better downrange  speed so at close range the pellet is a better choice but at range the slug has a lot less drop.

The example I use is my .25 Cricket. I zero the rifle to 50 yards with JSB 25 grain and a 39 grain slug shoots lower at 50 yards.  However, stretched to 100 yards the slug is shooting at the same level as the slug which means it is now traveling faster than the pellet and way heavier.  At range is where the slug shines, close in shots the pellets are a better (cheaper) choice.

I was pushing the JSB King Heavies (34gr) at about 840fps.

These will go out the muzzle at a similar speed and down range will have a lot less drop

If your M-Rod can push heavy Eunjins, and it can, then you will be good with the slugs.  Nick can make them any weight for you too.  I shoot Nick's slugs at 50-100 yds all day long.

The 25 cal slugs I make seem to do just fine in the choked barrel.  May be from the rifle engagement only in the very back of the bullet and very little actually touches the rifling.
