Powder Transfer Unit / Powder Funnel for 30 Caliber Projectiles - fits Dillon Powder Measure for XL650, RL550, and 1050 Presses
For loading 300 AA Blackout, 308 Winchester, 30-06 Springfield, 7.62x39, 30-30 Winchester, and others
My frustration with bridging issue while loading rifle cartridges using Dillon OEM funnels at one point reached the level, that I had to do something about. After thinking, drawing, prototyping, trying, getting frustrated even more, and repeating process from step one (FIVE PROTOTYPES!!!), I'm finally comfortable to offer this product to you, and subject myself to your judgment! I also appreciate your feedback and suggestions, as this type of funnel, to my best knowledge, is the first of a kind. I hope, you will keep open mind, and communicate any issues, allowing me to correct if it is correctable or otherwise issue 100% refund. As well, first batch of these funnels was limited to small number of units for obvious reasons. Please don't get frustrated if you miss out, - if these funnels will be well received, I will run much larger batch. I also will expand availability to other calibers and sizes, and make variation to accommodate both semi-auto and bolt action rifles, - please read technical details below.
With that said, this listing is for ONE Powder Transfer Unit in 30 caliber and spacer. PTU is designed to work with any cartridge, that use .308"-.312" full metal jacketed / plated projectiles, and geared toward reloading for semi-automatic rifles. However nothing precludes you from using it for bolt action rifles as, - I do such for my Tikka T3x in .308". Expander portion of the PTU is sized at .3085" (.3105" & .3125" options for had cast & coated projectiles available) with +/- .0005" tolerance. Subsequently it would be advisable to use crimping as a last step of reloading process. Both boat tail and straight projectiles can be used. Spacers included to accommodate shorter cartridges, such as 300 AA Blackout or 7.62x39. I included pictures of calibers that I tried, albeit I don't load all of these for myself (currently I only load .308 and 7.62x39). My trials were limited to making sure that Powder Measure is activated properly and charges can be adjusted. No bullet seating was tested!!! I want to point out, that short-necked cartridges, like 300 Savage (you can see it on one of the pictures) or 300 Win Mag will not reach bottom of the expander portion of the funnel. However Powder Measure will be activated via shoulder of cartridge triggering upward motion. Neck expansion will be sufficient for installing projectile manually or by means of using Mr. Bulletfeeder.
Same as my handgun PTUs this listing is for Powder Transfer Unit that will work on Dillon XL 650 RL 550 SL 900 & 1050 presses.
