4/27/2022 UPDATE: Orders are going out daily with great feedback.  Enjoy a tapered punch funnel today. 

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.

The benefits:

- 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
550B 1.830 1.910 1.960
650XL 1.725 1.805 1.855
1050 1.750 1.830 1.880
RL1100 1.750 1.830 1.880

** 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... 

** Some have reported of their Alpha Dropper top funnel locking onto the Dillon powder measure out tube.. don't panic.  We have great reports from commercial reloaders of a more consistent charge.. It rides with the measure and doesn't allow for loose powder to get caught in the gap.

** 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.

    Alpha droppers 9 & 45

    These are the only powder funnels I’ve found that work with bullet without issues. Bullets don’t keel over since cases don’t stick. Even after several hundred.

    Absolutely a must for a Dillon press. No more sticky cartridges! makes it run far smoother in both 650 and 1100.

    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

    Completely worth it

    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.

    Alpha Dropper

    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!

    Saved my arm and a whole bunch of time

    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!
