Re: Stainless Tumbling Media... anyone use this?

I don't have one yet, but my buddy has one. I gave him some of my 270 win and 17 FBL brass. Both looked great after tumbling. However, the 17's got pins hung up inside the cases. The only downside I can see. Primer pockets and inside carbon all gone. They did have some water spots on them, not sure if they got dried properly. He is still working out how to dry them.

    After seperating the brass from the media, I shake off the water, roll the cases on a towel and place the cases on a ceramic stove top and give them a little heat. Works great.

    Visit Sniperhide.com and read the extensive thread on stainless steel media.

    Unable to find my first post directing your attention to a forum, snipershide.com. I believe I left out the "s" in sniper.

    I bought one after visiting their booth at the Salt Lake City Expo last year. I was shocked at how good it worked! I even picked up some old steel, crusty brass and aluminum range brass just to see how it would turn out. Amazing results.
    My first time I used it I didn't rinse them well enough and had bad water spots. The only problem I have is pins getting stuck in the neck and flashhole. I check each one and poke any out any I find with a pick.
    Two thumbs up for SS tumbling!

    I have been using this set up for as long as when it became a isue. Have had no problems other than once in a while a piece of the stainless will get hung. Just check every piece and there will be no problem. Lemi shine does work better than cream of tarter, They use it with the brass media. I blow dri with air hose and they ready to load. I load 22.250, 6.5, 380, 45, 10mm, 7mag, 40cal, 30.06, 223 an a couple more what I am saying is the set up works and your brass will look new.

    One more thing about STM co., I get on LRH and give a glowing report for Stainless Steel Media. I mention one little drawback about the pins sticking in the primer pocket and the necks. Not often, but once in a while. I get an PM from someone named Trevor, who apparently works for STM and he wants to make it right with me. Really? I wasn't even griping about it. What a company!! STM for president!!
