Adjustable Shot Dipper
An adjustable shot dipper measures shot payloads by volume. The base slides in and out on a notched track that holds it in one of 8 pre-calibrated positions.
Although the numbers are graduated for lead shot, any type of shot can be used in the dipper.
Using the Adjustable Shot Dipper: Different shot sizes will occupy different volumes, even if both are the same base material. For example, #2 steel will occupy more volume than #4 steel. We have found that the Adjustable Shot Dipper, because you can visually monitor the load, is more accurate than shot bushings, and certainly less time consuming than other methods of shot metering.
Steel occupies about 30 percent more volume per weight than lead. Both volume and weight are factors in a load.
Always follow the recipe's recommendations for payloads and check your actual weight on a reliable scale.
