Anyone using .40/10mm 175gr. SWC LEE cast slug for Deer hunting?

Hi guys,
I don't have a 200gr. WFNGC 10mm bullet mold, yet.

I do have the 175gr. LEE tumble lube SWC design and love it for target shooting.
Anyone used this slug in their G20 for deer hunting and the results when used?
Any load data that you use would be appreciated as well.

Thanks!

I usually shoot my slug(175gr. Lee SWC tumble lube) with 11gr. of Blue Dot for target shooting in my 6" KKM barrel out of my Gen 4 G20.
I could go slightly higher fps maybe with some Longshot. Some folks have said I would get leading with this bullet,but using LLA, I haven't any yet to speak of so far. Even with the above listed load.

I know some people don't like LLA, but it's great stuff to lube bullets for my uses.
Thanks for the reply!

Did you ever post any of your results with the bullet on animals? I'd be interested to read more about your results.... I shoot a Suter's 175gr hardcast LSWC and, while I prefer the 180gr RNFP that I recently changed over to, I can still get both bullets locally. Its a VERY inexpensive bullet, so my interest is piqued in your Lee SWC...

BTW, what is the fps on this load with 800X if you happen to know?

No I did not post any. It was all small game. Have not shot any big game yet. But did pump one through a road kill deer and it was wicked what it did entry and exit.

Speed I don't know yet. But I can say this. It's way faster than 9.4 gr longshot. What my load does to steel plates is crazy.

If I had to guess I would think in am in the range of 1500 with it in my long slide. Maybe even over. There are no pressure signs. I could push harder but I get little to no leading and its a tack driver. No need for.more.

The meplat on the LEE 175 gr. SWC is probably very similar to what the LEE TC slug has on the nose. What length barrel is your Longslide? 6"?

So you like 800X better than Longshot?
I've been shooting Blue Dot with my 175gr. SWC tumble lube slugs and with 11gr. of Blue Dot, if I remember right from my Chrony, I think I'm getting about 1250+ fps.
I've loaded up some 180 XTP's with 9.6 gr. of Longshot behind them.
Haven't shot them yet, but they should be pretty potent from what I've read.

With the lead the longshot had a lot of leading. The 800x had none. And the 800 seems to be getting a lot more speed. The grouping is fantastic. Most accurate lead load I have found. Rivals some xtp accuracy.

No over pressure signs on my end with 11gr. of Blue Dot. No flattened primers or smileys.
KKM barrel I know helps with that.
I may get some 800X at the next gun show.

I think the Longshot might be pretty high pressures and the alloy hardness will have some impact on amount of leading. Also the wider the meplat the more effective the wound channel so

Wide meplat + velocity = allot of tissue disruption.

Plain and simple.
