I found that I'm only getting the pins stuck in the primer holes of Winchester brand brass, FWIW, and 25 caliber necks.

Just an observation - if you note the same I'd be interested in hearing it.


PS the stainless media works great for making original but used GM temperature senders look like new, too.

What a great company! I stopped at the mailbox on the way home from work and low and behold, there's a package from STM. They, (Trevor) sent me a package of SS media! I didn't ask or complain about their product, they just wanted to make sure I had no problems with their product. I'll pay this one forward. Chuck.

I just got mine last week and noticed the same thing about the media getting caught sidways in the neck of my 25-06 brass. Is this common and is the new SS their comming out with in April supposed to do away with this problem? Thank's, Brad

Occasionally a pin will stick in a case here and there, mostly in the smaller calibers like 22 up to 6.5. Just inspect each case with a AA Maglite, I use a bent paper clip with a small hook to free them and then throw those pins away. Out of 100 cases I may have up to a dozen, more so in hornet cases. SST is the real deal for like new brass that needs no primer pocket cleaning or polishing, good stuff, Waidmannsheil, Dom.

I've run a few loads of Wby 257 Mag cases this week, and about half of them have a pin or 3 that get stuck side ways when you first take them out. There are a few that stick as well when you remove the pins. I did a 7mm Wby load tonight and they just run out like water - far easier.

The worst is probably 25-06 Winchester brass - the pins stick in both ends!

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

Just got a new thumbler tumbler s/s kit from sinclair but no instructions on brass prep. Easy to set up. How much water in the drum ? How do you seperate the ss media from water and brass? The only instructions I got was for polishing rocks ! Thanks, Dan

Found info on another thread. Going to try it tonight.
