    I just bought a bunch of bullets from someone who was cleaning up his loading
    bench. It included a couple of boxes of "coated" bullets. Some Nosler Combined
    Tech and some Barnes XLC's. After reading up , on line , I dont think that I want
    to load them up and shoot them with the coating on and have decided to tumble
    them to clean them off. As I understand, a few hours in the tumbler should do the
    trick. Does that sound about right? Does anyone think that I should change out the
    media after that? Dont know if getting any of that coating on my cases would be
    detrimental or not.

    cheers

    If only, I would not use my main tumbler. Throw away the media after and clean the bowl.

    If hBN, shoot'em.
