I have long since replaced most of my Lee reloading equipment over the years with RCBS, the exceptions being my press, priming tool, and powder funnel. Since the wooded handle ball seperated from the press handle last night I think it's time to start saving for a Redding or RCBS press. But for now I have a bigger problem with static.
One of the major annoyances that I routinely encounter is static charge on my red clear plastic Lee funnel, especially after wiping it out with a paper towel. It causes my powder to bounce back to the upper end of the funnel while leaving at least 1 to 2 full grains of powder magnetized to the upper inner sides of the funnel. In some extream cases the static has caused much of the powder to literally bounce back and jump out of the funnel leading me to a re-measure of powder charge. This has been just one more annoyance I've encountered with Lee equipment. Has anyone here encountered this phenominon? Any guesses as to how to remedy it? Maybe a new copper or brass funnel is in order, but do the metal funnels encounter static as well?
