These Powder Funnels are specially designed for the needs of bullsey shooters loading Double Ended Wad Cutter (DEWC) or Hollow Base Wad Cutter (HBWC) bullets in .38 Special cartridges. These bullets are much longer than normal bullets and seated flush to the case mouth. The original powder funnels just don't reach deeply enough into the case to properly prepare the case for seating these bullets.

These postings on the Bullseye Forum discuss how loading HBWC requires attention to details with crimping and sizing cases back to specs. In particular, note the posts by David Wilson / fc60 and pay close attention to his explanation of brass expansion/bulging at the tapered area.

Opens the Case Without a Gross FlareOver the years I have loaded thousands for competition, on single stage
turret and today Dillon. It's always been a hassle to get the correct flare to seat the
HBWC. Not anymore loaded 50 as soon as I received it, no problem with the flare.
Opens up the case without a gross flare which was also hard on the case mouth.
Thanx for stocking a great product.
