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?
depends on the weight you are looking for.. 34gr would be good for stock mrod25

Appreciate the interest.

The .177 slugs take 2 dies to make them look like the .22 or .25's I make now.  I have the 1st die which can make slugs but they will be semi-wadcutter style.  If your gun can shoot that I could sell them now.  Most people's guns will want a smooth nose to enter the lands so it passes over an o-ring easier and loads straight with no lead in work on the barrel.

Monkeydad69 has some of these style.  The ones I made him were 20 grains but we can make them much lighter than that.

Depending on how testing goes on .177 and how my cast molds work in .22, I plan to try and make a mold in .177 and cast them to bring the cost down considerable.  For now, the only option is swaging which is a slow and limited production process.

I have a .25 war marauder that can push 31 grain pellets at 970fps. My question is what fps do the 34grain slugs like to go? Only thing that is stock on my marauder is the barrel. Just curious if the stock barrel does ok with the slugs? Thanks fellas.

These shoot just fine the stock barrel.  If you are shooting 970 with 31 grain these will shoot great in your gun.  Plus they will have less drop at 100 yards and beyond than a diabolo pellet.

Joe, coming your way .177 slugs - 20 grains.  Let me know how they do...

They are a pain in the *ss to make these in the light grains but I think I can get them down around 8 or 10 grains in the swage machine but they are so small it may be too much work.
