Star Reloaders / What to use to cut plastic powder hopper
« Last post by CDRT on November 06, 2019, 09:09:55 am »
I have a powder hopper/reservoir that I purchased a while back that is longer than the standard usually found on a Star.  It is actually a little too big.  What can I use to cut off a couple inches without destroying it in the process?  Thanks in advance.

There are three sizes of #31 Powder Spout.

#31A    Standard - Can be used for everything from 9MM up, but #31 B is recommended for 9MM

#31B    Small   - Recommended for 9MM and smaller

#31C    30 Carbine  - made of steel not brass

It is called "Powder measure spout" in the parts manual. And has a note following the nomenclature that says (Specify Caliber). Hopefully someone on the forum has a list of the different sizes and will share that info with You.

Good Shooting

Star Reloaders / Powder funnels
« Last post by brian_a_mcmillen on November 05, 2019, 05:28:56 pm »
Just wondering if there are different powder funnels (at least that's what I think they're called) for the Star Universal.  I have both the 45 ACP and 38 special tool heads and they both have what appears to be the same powder funnel.  I am thinking about rounding up the parts (dies etc.) to load 44 magnum and 9 mm and am wondering if the powder funnel is something I want to look at.  Specifically, is the standard funnel long enough to load the 9 mm or will powder spill given the distance from the funnel to the case.  Also, since 44 magnum takes a large quantity of powder would a funnel with a larger diameter work better?

 What is the diameter of your neck expander? What is the most desirable size for swaged(soft) bullets? Bullets are .4523 diameter.
