Re: Funnels

You must have a different RCBS funnel than I have. I just bought it because the Old Lee funnel I have been using for years, didn't fit the 300 RUM brass.

Take a couple of pieces of brass to the local Gun Store. They should have one that will fit.

Re: Funnels

Mine stops on the shoulder and allows powder to collect around the shoulder and then you have a mess...Wonder if they have come out with a new model?

Re: Funnels

My funnel had that problem for a while too! I cut a little off the funnel's lower edge and it fits fine now.

Re: Funnels

They must have changed them. The problem you describe is the exact same problem I had with the Lee funnel.

Re: Funnels

I trimed a little off my RCBS to make it work with the 416wby too, had to take off a little more for the Ultra too. Works fine this way...
