New to tumbling brass, no mystery to using but one question. After tumbling, do you guy leave the media in the separator bucket, return it to the tumbler or store it elsewhere.
Thanks, I have it in the garage, and I deprime before I clean.Benny
Just a note if you tumble fired brass with the primer still present, watch out for the fine dust generated in the tumbler it will contain lead styphinate, so its best to tumble brass in the garage or outdoors.
If there was any effect to be noteworthy, it would be that the surface of the brass is put into compression by the hammering action of the pins, which is a backhanded stress relieving operation similar to glass beading or shot blasting. More good than harm there.I concur with those who said the SS media and wet tumbling work extremely well. After doing a few thousand cases, I started wondering I the SS media being harder than brass causes any damage or life-shortening to cases. I would welcome opinions on this one. The SS media combined with the wet tumbling even cleans the primer pockets.
