    Ok, my Google Fu is weak on this one. Not coming up with too many results, so I thought I'd ask you gentlemen.

    Does someone make an aluminum or brass powder hopper for the Dillon powder measure? I find it hard to believe some enterprising person with basic machining skills has not produced one of these for sale yet (or Dillon hasn't, for that matter).

    I've seen references to a "conversion kit" sold by Black Dawge (Goex) in some forum posts, but there is currently nothing fitting that description on their website.

    I've also read where Dillon has a kit that allows you to use a Hornady/RCBS/Lyman black powder measure on their press with their expander die, but I don't want to do that either when I have a perfectly good Dillon measure that is only lacking a metallic hopper to make it safe.

    So, have any of you had any luck finding a BP compatible replacement hopper for the Dillon measure?
