    Looking for a funnel big enough for
    this case. The rcbs funnel I have doesn't
    cut it. I have been having to stick a straw
    through the funnel to get enough distance
    between the bottom of the funnel and
    The case shoulder.

    I'm not familiar with the case dimensions of the 338 Allen mag, but I had a similar issue with a 300WSM. The funnel I had contacted the shoulder before it would "seal off" on the neck. My solution was to take a box cutter and carefully trim up the plastic funnel. Once shortened, it works great. Not sure if this will work for you or not, but thought I would pass it along.

    Good luck

    Thanks, I'm not sure if that would work or not
    I might have to trim to much as there
    is some distance between there before it would touch.
    I use this funnel for .223 up to 338 edge so I don't
    want to lose that ability. Then again that might work, but
    I can't look at it now, as I'm out If town working.

    I did have to go to two funnels. If you are shooting 338Edge and 338 Allen Mag I would hope a new $7 funnel won't cramp your style too much! What is that equivalent to, about 3 rounds down the pipe?

    I am jealous of your fancy toys!

    Satern aluminum funnel works great with .338 edge brass. The funnels are caliber specific, but you never have static cling and if you ever use one you will not go back to plastic. Gary

    X2 on Satern powder funnels. Like was already mentioned, they are caliber specific so you'll need one for all the different calibers you reload for which sorta sucks but they are the best funnel I've ever been around.

    As a side not, if you're using a plastic funnel and you're getting static cling, wipe it down with a dryer sheet and you'll have no more static cling. This works especially well on powder measurers too.

    Thanks guys, I will be looking into their funnels.

    Static cling has never been a problem with my plastic
    funnel but it has with my rcbs charge master. I read on
    the 6br daily bulletin about an aresol spray that is suppose to
    elimate this. I would think you are better off eliminating all stactic
    electric charges interfering around an electronic scale to get the scales
    highest accuacy potential.

    Thanks for posting on these funnels. I just picked up a new 338 Allen Mag, and have a 338 Edge+P LRKM coming this summer, cant wait to get them out side to side and shoot long range. Im just getting set up to reload for both of these. I have plenty of brass, need powder yet.

    Well, finally got to do some loading
    with my Satern funnel. I'm pretty
    Impressed with it so far. No static,
    The spout is opened up more for my
    .338s and powder gets out of the funnel
    faster, and the actual funnel is a little
    longer/deeper along with steeper angled
    funnel which doesn't leave any powder
    hung on the side. Although this is probably
    more static. What I like about the longer
    funnel is, you can dump powder in there
    and not worry about a kernel bouncing out.
