Deprime first!! Its easy to bend deprime pins otherwise. After that do whatever you want.

I tumble to clean and THEN kick the dead primers out and lube and resize. No sense running any gunk off those casings thru your resizing die to wear it out faster.

Any pointers would be great

First thing I do is clean the blow back off the brass with 0000 wool while the case is jigged in my power drill and a univeral shell holder. Then I decap with a universal decapper, then lube it and size it. NOW, that I have my brand new Thumbler/tumbler, I use those to clean and let me tell you it works AS ADVERTISED. Looks like brand new shiny brass inside and out.

Then I trim, chamfer/debur and reprime and they are ready for the next load. I also just got in the mail 2 days ago my Sinclair/Wilson power adapter and a new cutter. Trimming cases has never been so easy/fast.

I'm sure others will have methods that work just as good, but I deprime using a Lee universal depriming die and then tumble and then run the brass through the resizing die.

I second this approach. I deprime all of my brass on a Single stage press with a Lee Universal Depriming Die before I tumble them. After tumbling I inspect all primer pockets for walnut and/or corn cob material.

Just as an added note I do resize all my rifle brass on my single stage press before trimming on my Giraud Trimmer. I then reload on my two Dillon 650s presses (one setup in SP and one setup in LP).
