Do any of you clean your hulls with a case tumbler and media prior to reloading? If so, what brand and size of tumbler and media extraction equipment do you employ? Also, what type of cleaning media do you use? Do you use any graphite in conjunction with the cleaning media? I'm thinking I can keep my reloader and chamber a little cleaner using this method. After a few reloads my hulls look pretty cruddy. I'm not interested in washing the hulls.

Thanks, for your replies........Jim

Pat: It's a thought. I've lot's of time in retirement. Cleaning a few shells may take up some of that time.

Throw them in the clothes dryer with a couple of old towels or rags and a bounce strip or two and tumble them for about 20 minutes. Makes a nasty noise and gets the wife a bit PO'd but it does work. Stay away from liquid cleaning processes or abrasives.

I once tried cleaning hulls in the huge Dillon vibratory cleaner.

Waste of time.

For Cowboy Action shells I used to wipe reloads down with a rag and Armoral. This is to aid in extracting them - not to make them look pretty.
