Powder Funnel Doesn't Fit Case!

Postby 357cyrus » 28 Aug 2014 08

So what's a guy to do when the powder funnel doesn't fit around the huge case body he's trying to fill and powder escapes around the neck and onto the bench? Well, my inner hillbilly looked around my reloading room, and figured a damaged 30-06 case, cut in half and turned upside down might just git-r-done! And it did. Here's what it looked like.

I thought you would ream the funnel out but what you did is even cooler.

That's funny. MTM sells a powder funnel with different neck sizes.

Like most really good ideas, this is so simple and obvious, that you just don't see the solution when it's right in front of your nose :D. Nice!
