    3031 is a fairly long stick powder. It is not uncommon for such powders to stick in the funnel or even the case neck and overflow. Give the case a few taps before removing it from the funnel or measure to let the powder flow into and settle in the case.

    A "compressed" load will normally be up to the base of the neck or so and you will hear some "crunching" as the bullet is seated.

    Hi Suputin,

    Yes, I do tap it as the powder goes down into shell case. I think I have a better routine now. Hopefully I won't make that mistake again.

    regards, Mark

    Sometimes it can take a pretty decent set of taps to dislodge stuck powder. But measure technique can go a long way to preventing the hangup in the first place.
