Plain And Simple? Brass media or Stainless.

How can you be sure that a drop of water is not hiding inside a case somewhere waiting to ruin a primer?

Perhaps some sort of drying rack with a heated base could be fabricated that would get the brass up to 80 or 90 degrees and ensure complete drying?
I grabbed one of my wife's shorty nylons and stuffed the brass in those after ultrasonic cleaning. My vertical dryer has a stand that you can put in that holds 'delicates' like wool sweaters and well nylons still so they don't tumble. The drum rotates around the stand and hot air is circulated from underneath directly onto the brass. That's it! Takes about 30-40 minutes maybe a couple sheets of fabric softener would take care of the work hardening, eh?

If you have an air compressor and a blow nozzle, especially a nozzle that will fit down inside the mouth of the case, this will work quick and very effective. I do this after neck turning Remington brass. I chuck the piece of brass in the drill and cut at high speeds. In order to keep it cool I spray soapy water on it which makes a really nice cut, but it requires drying out the inside of the case. I just blow dry it nice and throw it in the tumbler.

I can just hear my wife's comments about "now you want to know how the dryer works"

And if I show up with nylons I better have a receipt, she will sure know they are not hers, I have never seen her wear such a thing.
