Re: Brass Cleaning Using Stainless Tumbling Media System-Review
Warning Note to Pocketchange: reference your "drying technique" in the oven:
"I lay the brass out on the broiler pan from my stove-top oven and crank it up to 225 degrees for 10 min., at the highest location in the oven (to keep the heat down) and turn it off leaving the door closed for an hour or so, ='s nice dry brass. "
I have not found my reference yet but am pretty sure you don't want to "dry" your brass in an oven, even at what you consider low (225F) temp...remember how the sun on a 90F day can make a gun barrel hot enough to blister you; well me think you are softening your brass near the head which is a NO NO...annealing is only to the neck and then for mere seconds...hell many reloaders that anneal use a pan of quenching water to drop their brass in for just that reason...soft case heads is DANGEROUS. I may be wrong but would feel bad if you got a face full of hot stuff and I could have warned you. Let me know if you find out something either way.
