Stainless Steel Media Cleaning For Extended Hours

Had some brass being cleaned in the tumbler, and I usually let
it run for 4 or 5 hours. Although with some much time in between
every now then I forget about it, but only 30-45 min after I was going
to pull it out. Well Yesterday put some brass in and had a lot going on
and forgot about it, pulled it out today after about 22 hrs. Now besides
being extremely shiny is this going to cause any damage to my brass.
I wouldn't think so since over its entire life it will spend 30-50 hrs in the
stainless steel media and it appears to be fine but would like to hear some
others thoughts and experiences.

Thanks, Chase

Well loaded it up and shot it did not have any
affect on accuracy.

I don't own one of those tumblers but am thinking about gettIng one because they seem really nice. It's good to hear that you didn't have a problem with your brass after that though.

Those tumblers do look pretty nice, someday. I have
just been using the cheapy frankford arsenal tumbler,
just limits the amount of cases you can clean at one time.
I know they were not designed for this kind of weight but
it has not let me down yet and works great.
