Taofledermaus shows us with his incredible hand cast bismuth slug testing.
Bismuth has been around for years as a substitute for lead shot in waterfowl hunting.
How would it do as a shotgun slug? Well, Taofledermaus decides to make some slugs up out of pure bismuth. Using another shotgun slug to make a clay mold he uses this to make his experimental bismuth slug.
The cast slugs come out in a somewhat rough but quite usable form.
