    Yes.

    The Miss Molly Kit works well because you can spray it on loaded ammo. It has foam blocks
    to protect the brass.( Note; Don't get any on your brass because it can build up in the chamber

    For the bullets only I use the tumbler and the frankfort arsenal powder.

    If you tumble them you'll bugger up the lead tip. Ms Molly should work fine.

    Sorry I should have said Vibratory because that is what i use.

    They are still called tumblers but don't damage the tips of bullets like the old roating
    drum tumblers can if used improperly.
