    I used 2 paint stir sticks under the back of mine. Not sure of the angle but works ok.

    jim stewart reccomends 3/8-5/8 of an inch lower in the rear of the shotmaker,


    i made a stand out of angle,and installed 3/8 carrigage bolts with lock nuts for feet,so i can use a 9" level on the top of the stand to set my mesurement,i run 1/2 in lower in the back,

    you do have to watch your level,i try to run to where you see the top of the dripper nuts,and have about a inch void in the back(center) of the ladel.and my black max(with jims new coating on lip) runs 80-90lbs an hour of consistant size shot(higher lead level larger size,and blobs-remelts).

    three of the main keys to shotmaking,level of lead,roll on lip,and good lead. mark jones
