    Question (PURPLE) Lee Powder Funnels?

    I found myself needing some Lee powder funnels, not sure I'm ready for purple ones yet though.

    Purple is the color of royalty. You should feel very dignified when using it and you will be the envy of every other deplorable....

    Id just as soon they left them clear. Color can make a difference as some colors are harder to "Look" at than others.... Why machines are normally grey or a sea green its comforting to look at for long periods of time.

    My wife doesn't reload with me but I'll have to get one if she sees them, purple is her favorite color.

    jmho - i will never again purchase any Lee product no matter what color it is, due to the terrible experience recently with their customer service !
    never pick a fight with an old man - if he is too old to fight he will just kill you -
    in this current crisis our government is not the solution , it is the problem ! -

    The funnel came early. It looks exactly like a Lee funnel, but this one is marked 17-45 cal instead of Lee's 22-45 cal. I think I'll like it.

    Here is a pic, you can barely see the difference in the orifice size, this will be nice for small boolits like 5.45x39mm.
    I think Lee or one of their contractors who makes thier funnels is is contracting this out.
    Keep an eye out for the expanding Purple line with variations on Lee equipment.

    I like the LEE funnel but needed a tighter fit for the .22's so bought a Satern. I like it but it's but .22 only, now i want one for .32 mag so think the 8mm funnel is next. About $13 now, i think i paid more a few years ago. I like that link too, the link page is great!

    I tried both of these funnels against a 5.45mm case, you can see the neck of the case passes above the narrowest point on the Lee funnel. The MIT funnel on the other hand, the neck rest just below the narrowed orifice, no powder will get left behind with MIT.
