Re: Case tumblers. Who uses them and why?
I have a couple comments. First off, I hope your friend has good insurance. reloading for anyone other than yourself is an exercise in bankruptcy due to being sued or worse if someone gets hurt. Thats why ammo costs what it does, in part to the insurance issues.....Thats a big no-no
Secondly, as th charge butns in the case, it always leaves residue. That residue taks up space inside the case and can cause sporadic ignition, thy need to be clean inside and out plus the flash hols need to be burr free and unobstructed.
Finally, tumblers as well as media are a personal choice. Some like the vibrating bowl types, some like rotary. I have both. Rotaries like the RCBS Sidewinder and the Thumler Rock Tumblers are more noisy than a vibrator but can be run wet. Vibrators just humm. I have both and I actually like both so it's personal prefrence, like stainless tumbling media is a personal preference. You can buy enough cob, or walnur shll media to last a lifetime for the cost of one batch of stainless pins....
