and I do not want to bother him.

I just started shooting 6ppc and my plastic (read cheap) funnel and drop tube keep getting stuck on my cases resulting in them being picked and powder spilling. I have looked, read my various catalog's and Googled but have not found a quality powder funnel with a 6"-8" drop tube, preferably in metal.

Any source?

Polish plastic?

The case mouths are cutting into the plastic. Maybe bad technique on my part?

I've used these MTM funnels for ears. You can rig a funnel with a 3-7/8" drop tube with this by cutting the knot off the end and reversing the tube.

A S L O W drop will get more powder in a case than a long drop tube.

I guess I am doing something wrong as I am using an RCBS plastic funnel with 5 "adapters and a 3"-4" drop tube. Inserts are 17, 22, 27, 30 and 40 caliber. My "adapters" have an O ring on each that holds them to the drop tube and I see no way to reverse them. It looks like the MTM kit attaches differently.

I have been suing the 22 insert and the case mouths keep sticking.

By the way the wedding was fabulous. Finding somebody to put up with me and my stunts was a large undertaking. My customers and friends can bother me at any time- i love all my people.
