Has anyone had luck setting up the toolhead for a Dillon 550 to reload. 277 Wolverine? Specifically, what power drop funnel did you use? Will the drop for 6.8 SPC work?

TIA Gentlemen!

John - there is lots of discussion in various threads here in the forum.  The simple bottom-line is that Dillion doesn't make a powder funnel die that works well for the WLV.  Several users have experimented with modifying factory dies and have experienced good success. KDBarker wrote up a great post about how he modified a "N"-type funnel, others with access to machining equipment have modified "A"-types.

I fully suspect if a home hobby machinist could make a couple dozen custom funnels at a FAIR price, folks here would snap them up.  I'd sure buy one.

In order to make mine work on my 1050, so it didn’t dump powder everywhere, I took an N funnel and and a 20 degree endmill chucked up in my mill and ground the funnel down just until there was enough room for the case to seat in the funnel without hitting the shoulder. That eliminated the gap where the powder builds up and falls when the case is released. All the spillage now is from the case shake when it rotates to the next station. Worked for me but you kinda have to have a mill to make it work.
I used a 20 degree as it was as close to the 23 degree angle of the shoulder as I could get without spending 200 on a 23 endmill from Germany.
