About the Powder Funnel Kit

From the Frankford Arsenal Product Page:

The Frankford Arsenal Aluminum Powder Funnel kit helps you easily fill cases .17 caliber and up with precision by virtually eliminating incidences of spilled powder and static cling. The aluminum funnel and its caliber corresponding, O-ring sealed, laser engraved aluminum nozzles are finished in sleek black chrome to keep your powder static free and eliminate occurences of spilled powder for a safe, clean workbench and consistent loads.

The following is included with the Frankford Arsenal Powder Funnel Kit:

Before pouring powder charges, you’ll need to install the correct insert. First take the appropriate insert out of the case, and then press it into the output side of the funnel body:

As you press it in, you’ll feel it “bottom out”, that means its in place and ready to use! Very simple.

Pouring Powder Charges

I found powder charges to pour through this funnel rather well, with no visible static cling (this funnel has an anti-static coating). I tested both 22 caliber (22 GT) and 30 caliber (308 Winchester) cases with this funnel:
