    Mr. Siderer, most shot towers were 150 feet because there is a relationship to the size of the ball and the distance dropped. Remington followed the “Watts” method and drop for the “sieve” into water. This process is a cleaner and more cylindrical shot.
    I am more impressed that the City fathers had the hindsight to purchase the structure. Bridgeport had two towers that we were required to see and they are in terrible disrepair. they were 150+ feet and dropped into water. They tried the steam method too. Are they sure that they dropped into sand and never changed over too water?
