Re: Brass cleaning question

I think Riley made that catch because he has a poster-sized pic of that rifle on his wall! When I was 14 I had posters of stupid Italian cars and model-type women who probably couldn't even cook wild game. I think Riley's got it figured out!

Jeff, I thought you were going to say it was a wave radio . C'mon, its plugged in but I don't use it? Sounds like a Clinton quote to me!

Too funny. Riley your post made my night.

I just looked and it is ice cold and 90% of the stinky vinegar solution has evaporated away. Trust me it is ice cold and has not been fired up since the arrival of the STM system. The vibrator tumblers are under the bench sporting a nice coat of dust.

    Good catch Riley, but no glory..

    That's the way it always is. ha ha

    How necessary is a case tumbler for a new reloader? I'm just getting into the game and haven't purchased anything yet.

    Jay , you can surely get by for a while with out something. But at some point brass will get pretty dirty. I would at least use some 0000 steel wool on the necks and shoulders for now. If you shoot a lot, like clean cases inside and out, and plan to be loading for a long time, I will recommend you save for the STM.

    Re: Brass cleaning question

    Thanks for the kind reply Jeff. I have asked other reloading questions and got the typical "use the search function" answer from some members. I live over in Butte. I hope to meet you some day and look at your guns and loading gear or do some hunting with you. I hope to have my APS 338 AX this year (Kirby said I might have it for big game season) and need to practice on some of my other rifle rounds first.

    Jay, if you are coming over this way give me a PM. If you want to stop by and look over my equipment I will be glad to show you what I use.
