American Hunter FeederMax Game Feeder Funnels
a little persuasion needed
this product was just enough bigger than the bottom 1/3rd of the barrell to NOTgo on down into postion. no amount of pounding, prying,hammering,soaping,sideways then turning,or cussing was going to get this funnel to slide on down to the bottom. This thing is tuff. I pulled the funnel out, and with a hand grinder, cut about a 1/4 inch wide lateral slice in just the skirt which tops all the way around the funnel, and another cut on the exact opposite side in the skirt. this kept the funnel part in tact, yet allowed the skirt to give around the top, and with downward pressure applied, sqeeze together enough to allow the funnel to slide on down into correct position. I also used the grinder to grind down the thickness of the plastic at the edge, where the bottom of this skirt and the top of the actual funneling part meet. This whole fitting took about 1-2 minutes to perform. looks good installed and will use again.

The only down side to this funnel is: it is a little difficult to install. However, it is very sturdy, and will probably outlast the barrel and be reusable for the next one.

This funnel may be OK if you're building a new feeder, but it's impossible if you're retrofitting one. The plastic is much too stiff to slip inside. I was able to wedge it in at an angle, but could not get it flipped to sit flat. I had to end up cutting a radial slit to get it in, and once it was flat, there was a 1/2 inch overlap that I had to seal with duct tape. If they made it 1/4 inch smaller diameter it would be a lot easier, and one could use weather stripping or duct tape to seal any gap. If you have bolts for the legs protruding inside your barrel. You'd have to cut the plastic for clearance.

Best Purchase Ever
I have used this equipment for my Deer Feeders and the Squirles and Raccoons are sad. They a hole in the bottom of a Plastic Remington Barrel and chewed off the funnel as well. This metal funnel stopped them immediately.
