    Thumbs up ANOTHER TRICK FOR RELOADING

    Load all my ammo on a turret press. The smaller brass can get tricky dispensing the power, ( I weigh every charge)- picked up at the dollar store, a cake decorating thing which had different tips. Two of them are great for powder and even better when a piece of sickle stick is glued on the edge underside. Works like a charm and NO spilled powder.

    Just a caution that thin plastic funnels often generate a static electrical charge causing powder to cling snd then drop later. Think three slightly under weight charges and then one plus charge. Fine if you weigh each charge in the brass, but brass varies too.

    I make fine funnels out of typing paper with tape on the outside to avoid static.

    The cloth bag that decorators use to squeeze icing out to decorate a cake. They have different changeable tips to make different designs.

    OK? Guess I never thought of it that way. Was thinking more like "swizzle stick", but couldn't see how that would work.
