Hey Forester, it drove me crazy a long time ago and I persisted and came out the other side and am better because of it

Keep in mind that I trim and chamfer at the same time. What method do you use to trim and how long does it take? How about chamfering, do you do that by hand and how long does that take?

I don't Flitz the cases everytime as it lasts through 3 or 4 firings depending upon use.

Hey AJ, I don't think making 'em look pretty makes 'em shoot any worse because of it neither

Yeah, I'm sure you're right.

Re: Alternative to tumbling

You can buy an ultrasonic cleaner for around 100 bucks on Ebay. Best thing about these is they not only clean the outside of the case but the inside too. Don't have one but it's on the wish list... Here is a good write up on them. UltraSonic Case Cleaning

Re: Alternative to tumbling

buckbrush,
Check that tumbler good. Mine has stopped on me twice over the past 10yrs. The first time the in-line on/off switch went bad. I repaired the switch and got it going again. The second time one of the AC wires came off underneath the bowl. I replaced the female connector and re-connected. My first response both times was to start looking for another tumbler. JohnnyK.

"Alternative to tumbling"

Wipe the cases off with a dampened cloth.
All they need is to be clean, not polished.

Re: Alternative to tumbling

One of my friends at the range uses Krazy Kloth to clean his cases. He cleans each case with the Krazy Kloth after it is fired prior to putting it back in the box.

- Krazy Kloth

One of my other friends uses the Birchwood Casey's Brass Cartridge Case Cleaner liquid and then the green cleaning/scrubbing pads to clean really stained/tarnished cases. He says the green pads really work.

Personnally I use the tumbler and then the Birchwood Casey's Brass Cartridge Case Cleaner liquid if they still aren't shiny enough. The liquid really cleans the insides well. The ISSO liquid works good too.

I also use the Krazy Kloth or Flitz from time to time to clean up the outside of dirty necks. My buddy says the green cleaning pads work good for that too.

Pulled it apart. One of the female terminals had broken off the wire. 2 minute fix and it's back up and running.

Thanks everyone. I will look into some of those other options though...especially the shiny ones. Man those are pretty!
