    Anybody make an M style Dillon powder funnel?

    Title says it all. I recently acquired a used 9mm Square Deal B. I would really like a powder funnel that has the same dimensions as a Lyman M die. From what I've gathered on forum searches, the Mr Bulletfeeder funnel may not expand quite as much as a Lyman M die. Do we have a resident machinist on the forums making custom powder funnels? I see one guy on eBay used to make them, but he only has a .40 cal listed and doesn't respond to messages. I'm looking for something like this but in 9mm:

    I have the 9mm Mr Bulletfeeder powder funnel and I love that thing! I wished I had bought it sooner than I did. Its not cheap but it really improves your cadence running the press. I wouldn't call it the Dillon equivalent to an M-die but its superior to the original unit.

    I have made a few. My .357's and .44's run much better with the custom funnel/expander. I used drill rod, and heat treated them. I'll send pics if anyone is interested.

    Any problems with 9mm sized to .357 sized cast boolits? On my rockchucker, before I got an M die I was having concentricity problems, bulged brass, and case gauge failures. Also was swaging down my boolits a little. If mrbulletfeeder prevents this stuff then it will be good enough for me.

    I have a variety of .38/.357 boolits including some plated an J-words, when I get off work tonight ill cycle a few pieces through and do a little checking and report back.

    I checked the fit of some .38/.357 bullets and anything .358 or smaller will enter the case. I didn't have anything that mic'd .359 to try but .360 wouldn't go at least where I had the powder funnel set at. Now that funnel might be adjusted deeper to change the results but this being on my match ammo toolhead, I really didn't want to disturb the settings.

    Hopefully that helps you out!
