Re: case cleaning

i do not like to remove the primers after tumbling. reason is, the flash hole gets media in it and i have a difficult time removing the primers. i do like Bob said. i take the brass out on the couch, watch Sponge Bob Square Pants with the boy and clean out the holes with a small allen wrench.

Re: case cleaning

I'm with Buffalobob on this one.

I keep it simple and use a decapping assembly as I take each one out of the tumbler. Sure it takes time, but anything worth doing is worth doing right. Plus, the money I don't spend on some fancy apparatus to do it for me goes to components.

I decap/size, hot bath, rinse, dry, tumble, and then punch out media from flash holes.

For extremely dirty brass I have been known to bathe and tumble (the brass, not me) before decap/sizing to prevent scratching the inside of the die.

Aftr tumbling,I use my air comressor w/ a air nozzle,110psi. air pressure will take care of all the little crumbs that might get left behind from the tumbler.
