10/24/2020... They arrived at the coaters and I will post here when they return and ship from us. Large Primer 45 reloaders are really excited about the new funnel.. guess they ran out of small primers.. just picking.
Restock Update 10/22/2020... Alpha Droppers 9,40,45 will arrive this friday at the Coaters. BACK ORDER IS NOW LIVE.
Reloader's rejoice... The Alpha Dropper Powder Funnel is here and it’s compatible with All Dillon powder measures. This funnel was designed from scratch and takes care of any and all issues associated with the sub par funnels that were previously available. This is compatitlbe with bullet feeding dies.
- Material used is overkill... 30 Hrc internally hardness with a 67 Hrc hard low friction surface finish.
-No more sticky scratched up worn out funnels.
-The machine polished punch tip is tapered to greatly reduce the sticky release chunk on the upstroke.
-That same taper is perfectly sized to capture your bullet tightly. All bullet types tested 100%. Your bullet tipping over on index problem is now reduced.
-Ported and polished powder path for maximum flow and it’s Larger than anything available.
-With the Alpha Dropper you will experience a more consistent powder flow rate as well as tight bullet placement. It’s the last powder funnel that you will ever need to purchase.
SETUP NOTES, PLEASE READ
** Powder measure die adjustment IS needed....
|Machine||9mm Starting Point||40s&w Starting Point||45acp Starting Point|
** DO NOT DRIVE THE FUNNEL TO FULL DEPTH... that will over bell the case and kill bullet neck tension. The chart above is a starting point.
** Measure your previous brass for your favorite bell diameter.. setup the Alpha Dropper to match OR LESS, but do understand that unless you run new brass, you have lots of variables. The Alpha Dropper will typically run perfectly with way LESS bell.. remember it's a taper now...
** 9mm/38sc Typical Brass Bell measured Outer Diameter: 0.385-0.390. Also refer to chart above.
** 40s&w/10mm Typical Brass Bell measured Outer Diameter: 0.435. Also refer to chart above.
** Keep your funnel clean, we recommend using XXXX Steel Wool.
** We also recommend using Brass Juice case lube for your reloading.
I’ve tried it all. Dillon, MBF,an expander die. This by far the best. Fixed fail rate to zero with polymer coated Bullets. Will buy more for my other presses
Probably the single best product I've bought for my Dillon press. From now on, I'll have one of these funnels for every caliber they can offer.
So cruising along, loading round after round, and on the upstroke, your press jolts powder all over the place when the powder funnel sticks coming out of the brass. So Frustrating!! Not anymore, this Alpha dropper works just as advertised. So many upgrades out there to make your Dillon smoother, this is definitely #1!
Easy install and works exactly how its supposed to. No more stuck cases and spilled powder. Good innovation!
Started loading new brass for my open gun and had to do 3 things; 1.Wet tumble brass 2. Lube 3. Scrub and polish OEM funnel with scotch brite and dremel. Now, I only lube the new brass and occasionally wipe the Alpha Dropper Powder Funnel. Highly recommend!
So far, this Alpha powder funnel is working quite well. It will be a good upgrade for those looking a good product.
Loaded 1000 rounds yesterday. The dropper works great with the automated press. There was no binding and no variance in the charge. All rounds gauged perfectly.
