    7. add bullets, put on lid turn tumbler on.
    8. tumble for a few hours (very noisey) let tumbler sit for awhile to let the dust settle. take off lid remove bullets with gloved hand, tongs, or tweezers, place in another small container.
    9. pass bullets back and forth between two small containers, this will knock off excess moly (acts like a coal breaker / seperator or a "screen" for top soil, rocks, etc.). dump excess moly that has fallen off back to tumbler. continue to "screen" bullets until no excess moly remains in bottom of container.
    10. put bullets on rag, roll around / pat to get more excess moly dust off. at this point, whatever is going to adhere is going to, whatever doesn't is coming off.
