Re: Tumbling loaded ammo?
I guess I would ask "WHY" ?
Prepare your brass before you load it and don't take a chance with changing burn rates.
Powder burn rates are controled by shape and size and the coating(A Stabilizer in most
cases) and changing that can be detrimental to the performance.
Think about how many times the case gets shook or tumbled in order to remove the patina/
corrosion on the outside of the brass.with an abrasive media. Powder is not subjected to this
amount of vibration in its lifetime of shipping and handling.
Media wears out with use and produces lots of dust in the process of tumbling and powder
will do the same. I'm sure that different powders will break down at different rates,So again
WHY take a chance.
We all have had different batches of the same powder burn at different rates and the formula
is the same for that particular powder so what has changed ? the shape,hole diameter,coating
So I a person wants to tumble or vibrate a loaded round ,It is his choice but common sense
alone should tell you it is not a good practice. It is best to error on the side of safety.
