In FIG 90 are two examples of the many powder funnels available for the XL 650. On the left is a typical pistol caliber funnel. On the right, a rifle or bottle-necked type. The bottom of the rifle style funnel fits snugly over the neck of the case allowing powder to drop in without spilling (the rifle style powder funnel does not bell the mouth of the case). The bottom of the pistol funnel, on the other hand, fits inside and actually expands the case mouth as it guides the powder into the case (the expansion of the case mouth is where the mouth of the case gets its bell). Powder funnels are caliber specific so be sure you have the correct funnel by referring to the caliber conversion chart.
