The 1050 in handgun calibers from .380/9mm Caliber and up use a tapered "powder measure activator". This is the same from .380/9mm up through 45 caliber. Unlike powder funnels for the other machines, these are not marked as there is no need to. This only flared the case mouth and activates the powder measure, as on the 1050 machines, the case mouth is expanded by the swage backup die.
