Also, what powder trickler works well? Local Bass Pro has a Hornady and Frankfort Arsenal in stock.
I have both the Hornady and FA and would recommend the FA. They both work, but the FA is heavier and doesn't move if bumped.
Now this man needs to read sum
I have and use a Frankford Arsenal trickler and it's a good tool. I used to use a pharmacist's spoon but it was a pain. Before that I just used a 0.17CC Lee Dipper and tapped in powder until the scale leveled. The FA is the first actual trickler I've tried so I don't have anything else to compare it too except using more basic hand tools.
You're going to have to get in their catalog and dig out the parts. You use your Dillon powder funnel but need to buy an "old" RL450 style powder die, the adaptor to accept 7/8-14 threads, and the little funnel that fits perfectly onto the adaptor. This is my 30-06 set-up. Sometimes I throw charges from an off-press dispenser, sometimes I screw in my Uniflow and manually charge cases on the press.
ETA: you must remember to pour the charge while the press is in the up stroke. I inevitably spill at least one charge every session.
You're not the only one to do that.
I use this works good with progress press
Hornady 095360 Lock-N-Load AP Powder Funnel Die, Accessory
Thanks for the pictures and info. But I can't find that long black spacer on Dillon's site. Do you have a link to it by chance?
This^ The adaptor is linked to it.
This might work as well. It's not what I have so I can't vouch for it. But apparently the funnel fits on it too.
This is what I use too. As mentioned, ram UP Only
VV powders don't stick to the funnel, and funnel has a taper in the bottom to fit whatever case mouth size.
Actually, that’s how I do it. It’s load development, so it’s not many rounds. I’ll take the case out after the non-powder drop, weigh it, dump a charge and back to the bullet seat. I have an RCBS trickler, it works well, as does the chargemaster. Good luck.
I use this. Dead simple and cheap. Doesnt spill powder either. The only thing I might like a bit better is if the funnel was just a hair taller to help clear other dies on the press.
Looking at the 1100, seems like it should work, but call Dillon to be sure.
Thanks. I did find that, but didn't think it included that long black spacer.
Thank you, that's the part I was looking for.
But in looking at it more, do I need that part? Will the Dillon funnel fit in the top of the RL 450 die w/o 20029?
I was trying to suggest looking into this^
Its a different die than the RL450 and since its shown with the funnel I'm thinking it might accept it without the adapter. The adapter is threaded to install other powder drops. If you never plan on doing that, you might save yourself some money. I just posted what I have that also fits your use but might not be the best option for you looking into it more. I did it so I could also use my Uniflow.
A phone call to Dillon might get you the right stuff if you tell them what you are trying to do.
ETA: If you follow the link to the funnel from the AT500 die it states that the funnel fits into the top. Viola!
