If you are frustrated with losing wort with your or leaf pellets at the end of the boil, consider putting your hops in a muslin or nylon bag.  Though you will not get as great of an exposure to the wort for bitterness extraction, this can be made up for by adding an extra half to full ounce to the bag.  If the beer lost is worth the extra fifty cents for additional hops, this is a good trade.  At the end of the boil, just pull out the bag (carefully), give it a squeeze (preferably with tongs), and your wort is leaf free with minimal loss.
