Generally tumble until they are clean/shiny. If you tumble with the spent primers in place, the bad stuff (I think mercury) gets vibrated out into your media, so try not to breath the dust etc.
As far as a good book on the fine details around precision handloading, I recommend the following book
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
