Fits in the Dillon Auto Powder Measure and works on Dillon RL 550, XL 650, RL 1050 and Super 1050 presses.
.30 Caliber Rifle Powder Funnel
Designed to work with any cartridge that uses .308″-.312″ projectiles and geared toward reloading for semi-automatic rifles.* Expander is sized at .3085″ +/- .0005″. Subsequently it is advisable to use a crimp. Both boat tail and straight projectiles can be used. Neck expansion will be sufficient for installing projectile manually or by means of a Mr. Bulletfeeder.
*However nothing precludes you from using it for bolt action rifles.
☆ Now Available in 6.5mm/.264 Caliber. ☆
— Perfect for 6.5 Creedmoor!
Two Step Expander is sized at .2645″ and .2665″. First step is for boat tail projectiles, and would not require crimping (for most firearms, it might be needed for semi-autos). Second step is for flat bottom/base projectiles, and crimping is strongly recommended. The COWL is reamed at .299″ ID for 6.5 Creedmoor.
NOTE: Funnels for other cartridges needing larger ID COWLS (.301″ and .310″) for cases with thicker brass (e.g. 6.5 Gerendel) will be available in the future. Please call.
Three Spacers Included
Three Spacers (0.500″, 0.625″ and 0.750″) are included to accommodate short cartridges (e.g. 300 AAC Blackout, 7.62x39mm, 300 WSM). Simply drop the needed spacer into the powder die on top of the Rifle Powder Funnel.
The same three spacers are also included with the 6.5mm/.264 cal Rifle Powder Funnel allowing use with other length cartridges (e.g. .260 Remington).
• Precision Machined from 12L14 Steel
• Case Hardened to RC55+
• Highly Polished Expander Tip for Smooth Release
• Smoother Interior for Smooth Powder Flow
• Drop In Replacement for Original Dillon Rifle Powder Funnel
Note: Short-necked cartridges, like 300 Savage or 300 Win Mag, will not reach bottom of the expander portion of the .30 caliber funnel. However, the Powder Measure will be activated via shoulder of cartridge.

6.5 Powder funnelI wish I would have bought this before I paid for a Dillon factory funnel and a Lyman neck expanding die, these funnels serve both purposes. The funnels are polished much better than the factory funnels. I have only tried it with Superformance which flows perfectly. With IMR4350 you have to work slower and I bounce the handle 2 or 3 times at the bottom of the stroke to help the powder flow, If you try to go too fast with 4350 you will still get some bridging and end up with a mess. I also bought the 30 caliber PTU but have yet to try it.
30 Cal. powder funnelBefore purchasing this funnel, I could not get a good crimp on cast bullets for my 300 Blackout. The case neck was shaving a large amount of lead. Using this funnel with the neck expander I have no lead shaving and allows for tight bullet seating and a great crimp.
30 cal Dillon FunnelsI've been buying funnels from Photoescape for a couple of years now, and everyone has been top quality, functions flawlessly, and saves steps and time. I was really excited when I saw the new 30 cal funnel. I use 300 BO and run diameters from .308 FMJ plus PC (powder coat)/HTC from .309 up to .312. I've tested FMJ, PC, and HTC extensively with all 3 sized funnels (.3085, .3105, .3125) and they work extremely well. I have ZERO issues with PC/HTC coatings being scratched or shaved off. The coating look brand new after pulling test rounds. Following the setup instructions allows me to run the press as fast as I desire. Before I found these funnels, I had to size and and de-prime in a completely separate step and setup. Now, I've gained back one station on the press, eliminated the separate sizing/de-prime step, and can neck expand in-line. This is a huge time saver and bonus! With everything Photoescape sells, I buy two of each. Not that I fear them wearing out, I want the insurance of having a spare if I one disappears. The funnel extension adapters are an awesome addition if I want to use other calibers. I never want to be without these, ever. Rob aka, NCShooter.
