1" Flat Double Bevel 1/16" FC wagon tracks help please

I recently took a practice test with 1/16" wire Lincoln 71M Fluxcore on a 1" double bevel with 1/4" gap and 1/4" backing in the flat position. After cutting a section out, I had good penetration at the root but slag inclusions on either side of it. I have taken similar tests with .045 wire and have never had this problem. Any input on this is greatly appreciated! I was running about 29-30 volts and 300 wfs with c02 gas.
