I have an SKS I am going to start reloading for but I need to slug the bore to get the right bullet size. I have never slugged a bore but I do know the basic process. What size of lead ball should I use to slug it? and where can I get just a couple?

Look for lead egg or slip sinkers big enough to just be oversize. If you get home and find they are slightly too small, you can whack them with a hammer to expand them.
Be careful to get real lead sinkers.
There are a lot of "lead-free" sinkers being made now that are too hard to use for slugging a barrel.
