    I'm looking at the Forster Blue Ribbon Powder Funnel with Long Drop Tube but was wondering if it will fit into a .223 Rem case neck. I read on a review that it would not fit into a 22 Hornet but on the Forester website it says it will fit .223 Rem. Don't really want to spend the money if it won't fit. Thanks guys!

    Interesting. The only thing I'm familiar with when it comes to long drop tubes and their use is for BP and I use one in this application. When you talk of using one for the .223 I'm assuming (yeah, I know) it's for SP, so are you also going for compressed loads?

    Yes, well .2 over max load. Just seeing if I can get the powder any farther down for a better seat of the bullet. Don't need much but do need some.
