    Funnel

    Funnel nightmare

    I have a RCBS green funnel that when I pour the powder into funnel most go in the case and some of it collects on the sides of the funnel just above the case mouth, I have tap the funnel and the powder sticks to the plastic and refuses to go in so I have to push the last bit of charge off the plastic and into the case this is slowing my reloading down, could be static in the plastic or the powder.

    So has anyone else had the same problem and what did they do to overcome this, before I buy a metal one.

    Just cut the bottom off 243 nice tight fit over the 223 for now

    Chris.

    Yup,! I just cut it down a little so the case neck doesn't stick up into the funnel, but I was only having that problem with WSM cases.

    Sounds like lube on the case neck

    dry and try.

    I've seen Muir advise dippig in soapy but non frothy/sudsy water and letting it drip dry. Lee's advice apparently.

    If the static is holding the powder, try washing the funnel in soapy detergent and then letting it air-dry without rinsing. From then on, do NOT wipe your funnel out. Let the powdery residue season the funnel further.~Muir

    Get one of these Lyman jobs. No mucking about with 2 piece pan and funnels, static can cause sticking but simply blowing on will discharge it.
    Best 7 I have invested in reloading.
