    I just switched my shotmaker over to #8 double drippers and am getting football shaped shot. What can I do to fix this problem? thanks, Jamie

    Add some rifling and give it a good spin!

    How about a Brett Favre-designed shotgun?

    The shot isn't getting sufficient time before quench.

    The drippers are the same design (jim stewart's) as the old. I think I may have it figured out thanks to shubble72's advice. The shot still is not perfectly round , but I think I will get it figured out.

    on a serious note, it sounds like it is too cool and not forming correctly.

    jmbo, what watts are run running on your shot maker? If you are running 7 doubles with less than 1500 watts, this could be your problem. 10tenner
