Powder funnels
« 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?

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

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
