    I use static sheets in my tumblers. I clean my hulls after each use. Can see the pin holes and split crimps easily.

    Humidify the air and you won't have any issues. The other thing is don't store hulls in plastic containers.

    Quick question. Bobby posted that he is placing his empty hulls in a tumbler. Are these the same tumblers that a person would use for preparing metalic cartridges for loading? And if so, what are you using to clean these hulls? Is it media?

    Thanks

    Shaner72,

    You just have some residule static that hasn't quite gone away yet. Another week or two and it will all be gone.

    Get a can of Static Guard, (aerosol)...a light spray on the hulls will do the trick.

    Revator97 has the answer - simply stand the hulls up and mist a very, very little Static-Guard over them and let them dry a few seconds and you will not have any static problem inside the hulls. the beav

    just put a sheet of bounce in your hand and run your hand through the hull container, worked well for me. the static charge seems very light, goes away easily.

    Dave,
    I have two media tumblers for metalic cartridges. Each holds 50 hulls. rum for 30 min. or so. wipe with cloth. nothing shines like brass. It is my belief that persons that do not clean after use, impregnate there chamber with residue on uncleaned hulls.

    Ground your reloader. Then use a dryer sheet in the powder hopper. Static is a bigger problem in the wintertime with the heat drying out the air. Powder drops can vary wildly.

    An air ionizer is about the only way to neutralize a static charge on plastic. There used to be stagic charge removing sprays back in the vinyl LP days that worked pretty good. There are also static sprays for clothes. I doubt a dryer sheet would do much good without actvating it in a heated moist environment, but have read on here that it seems to work for some.
