    Have made 7 1/2 and heard about #8 but never have seen any info on #9 shot. Have started shooting a little skeet again and would like to make some #9 shot. Are there drippers available or does anyone know the hole size in order to make 9 shot. Thanks in advance. Dave

    What shotmaker machine do you have?
    There are #9 drippers available that fit both the Better Shotmaker and the Littleton. You have to feed your machine really good clean car wheel weights in the ladle when making #9's due to the small hole in the dripper.
    Contact James Stewart at 256-587-0107 for further info on price and shipping.

    I was told it worked better to thin out the wheel weight metal with some plumber's lead to make good 9 shot. Just hearsay, not actual experience.

    I have some plumber's lead and some wheel weights. Is there a good ratio of plumbers lead and wheel weights to use to make some good shot? 50/50? Thanks, Roger
