    I just discovered a plastic tote full of hulls and half full of water. My question is: How long does it take in the dryer to dry my hulls. It's my wifes birthday and she is gone to town so I have to get them dry before she returns or all hell is going to break loose. They are already in the dryer so there is no going back.

    Help

    They'll knock the finish off of the tub. Take out of dryer and throw away. Not worth saving $20 to put up with all the grief and costs!

    Maybe the drier will melt the plastic hulls. Let us know. HMB

    This is clearly a id# 10t problem and should be escalated to the shell manufacturer

    221, I thought you already were sent to the back of the class or was it the short bus. Put those hulls in a pillow case and into the dryer, best if wife is not home as it makes a lot of noise

    A pillow case that is what I needed. Just for your guys information. It only took 30 minutes to dry and they look like new hulls. I decided I had better clean out the dryer so I washed some old work clothes and threw them in the dryer. I don't think the hulls will chip a stainless steel drum but I can see how they would a enamel one.

    My grandfather tried to dry some federal papers on a cookie sheet in the stove. Forgot about them until they caught fire. The snickers on the firemen's faces, priceless.

    Depends on the hull type. If they have a paper base, I doubt that even running them through the dryer will get them dry enough. I'd even worry about new style AA's as the water might get between the hull and base wad and be much harder to dry out.

    +1 on steve mainus post. Knock the old primers out and they dry a little better.
