I cast up a good bunch of these, 314 grains checked and lubed. Lee book has max 2400 load at 13.5g and Uni is 7.2g. Anyone ever shoot these published loads from similar platforms? looking for something that'll hit hard to about 100 yds with good accuracy. Just looking for insight as to what I should expect. Thanks.

I've used the same mold, for a leveraction carbine, had to tweek the seating depth quite a bit, to get them to feed reliable due to the large meplat.
I ended up with them seated rather deeply, reducing case powder capacity (when using such a long bullet) even further.
I noticed the slower powders were being somewhat compressed and pressure signs occured early with load workups, from the somewhat reduced OAL.

I found the 310gr slugs to shoot well in my carbine out to +100yds, hit with authority and then some.
