Thank you to everyone who responded so quickly to my Ohm's Law calculation.
I even got a link to a commercial product that will do the job. 
73 to all, Mike W2IY

Subject: [Boatanchors] meter shunt

Folks, I am holding a 150-amp DC meter whose native full scale is 50
millivolts. If I have done my Ohm's Law correctly, the required shunt is
0.00033 ohms. Not in the Mouser catalog :-) :-)  Is this just like 8 inches
of #18 wire or something? Advice welcome. aTdHvAaNnKcSe and 73, Mike W2IY
