What powder funnel?

Recommended Posts

So I am loading 5.56 ammo.  I bought a new Lee powder funnel to start loading this ammo. Now 250 rounds later the neck of the funnel has worn so much that the case sticks up into the funnel.  The powder catches around the neck of the brass instead of flowing into the case.  My 52 year old plastic funnel still works ok but I would like a new one just incase the old one messes up.  What do you use when you load one case at a time?    😁😁😁

I checked reviews from several sights.  All are good except if you are loading 5.56/223.  They said that the case will extend up into the funnel on the 556 case.  One person said he was trying to find a spare as backup to his 1970"s RCBS but the new one would not work on 22 cal. cases.  I guess I will try to find an all metal funnel. Seems that the older funnels work on small cal. cases and the new funnels don't.    😕😕😕
