I use a 2x4 and a paddle bit 3/4 inch and drill down 3/8 inch doing 20 or 30 holes in the 2x4 and use a spare funnel i have filed off 1/8 inch and have no problems with either 380 or 9mm. The funnel will fit into the 3/4 inch hole to keep it in place. Charlie

The MTW universal load block is one of my most often used tools. You can almost always find a hole that allows the funnel to work.
