Double Alpha Powder Funnel

Post by Soupy44 on 11/10/2018, 8:20 pm

Doing my research to start loading lead bullets sometime next year.  I reload on a 550.  Is this my best option for opening up the case the same way an M style die would?

Looked around and saw some threads about stand alone dies for this, but I don't think that will work with a 550 unless I seat and crimp in one station.

Thanks!

I use those on my 550 with great results. Mimics the Lyman M die. Go for it.

Thank you.  UniqueTek is one of my resellers, although Double Alpha ordered my funnels in the past as well.

My Double Alpha powder funnel looked like it was threaded inside. Double Alpha said that it had passed their QC Crying or Very sad

Also, any recommendations for a seating die that seats off the shoulder? Thanks!

If you are already shopping at UniqueTek, get the shoulder seating bullet stem from them for the Dillon die set: http://www.uniquetek.com/product/T1561 available in 38, 40 or 45 caliber.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Ordered the stem and powder funnel today! Plan to get another toolhead setup going for this for simplicity. Hope Santa has me on his nice list this year!

Affirmative.  1050 uses same Powder Measure as other Dillon presses.
