Sabot slugs 517 gr?

I everyone, been awhile but I'm back to reloading again. I moved up here to Alaska at the end of 2014 and have been pretty busy since then, fixing up this place. Anyway, I traded a guy for these slugs and they are coming in at 517 gr. Would that be considered 1 1/8 oz for load data?

Thanks in advance.

All you have to do is a quick Google search for a conversion chart.
I see the world thru bloodshot eyes
Streets filled with blood from distant lies
The dogs of war never compromise,
No time for rearranging.

437.5gr to the ounce.

517-437.5= 79.5

1/4oz = 109.37gr

If you are looking for load data, that 517gr is over 1 1/8 and less than 1 1/4 oz. SO data for 1 1/4 oz should be safe. Should be. All the usual practices and disclaimers for working up loads apply.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
