RJ, pistol primarily corn cob in a Dillon vibrating thingies. I do wet tumble them if they get really skunky, like sitting in the weeds for winter.You guys do it now you want, but I'm really liking my Lyamn corncob media tumbler about now. No muss, no fuss, no waiting for brass to dry or wondering if it is actually dry or am I loading cases that are still wet.
Can you shoot the difference between wet sonic ss pin cleaned brass and dry media tumbled brass? Just asking because I want to know as I've never shot any but dry tumbled in corncob media brass.
Not judging, just pointing out what I see.
Woop, gotta go get that .223 brass out of the tumbler and get to loading. 😉
The citric acid I mentioned is an exception, as it is a fairly strong chelating agent. It actually makes lead less toxic.Darkker said:Liquid cleaner (surfactant, acidic, soapy) solutions make the metal oxides far more absorbable and spreadable. Don't be sifting through it with bare hands, and dumping it on the baby bottles in the sink.
Never empty wet tumbling into a septic tank. They're not meant to deal with carbon.Another of my concerns was/is disposal. I'm sure that my corn cob media is just as "filthy" but it gets put in a "coffee plastic" then a garbage bag and hauled (eventually) to the local landfill. I'm not sure what the "water" from wet tumbling would do to the little microbes in my septic tank or what would happen if I dumped it in my ash pit.
Just thinking out loud
