    Ultrasonic bath of water, liquid soap and citric acid. Rinse in clean water after.

    I was shown to complete the case preparation and cleaning before I prime them.

    In your case it may depend on the type of lube you have used. What does the manufacturer recommend?

    Nothing will remove silicone.

    A damp soapy cloth will remove Lee lube from the exterior.

    Don't prime them and chuck into a tumbler with plain media for a few hours. Knock out the media from the primer flash holes and job done.
    I use a Lee trimmer rig to do the flash hole at the same time as trim and check.
    You can wash the case lube off for most brands but then you've got to dry them.

    Sorry guys, I always clean lube that way, BUT, after deprime, resize, necktrim. I should have noticed the OP's mention of After priming.

    Thanks guys for the replys, at the moment I chuck the re sized unprimed cases back in the tumbler for 30 min but I've just purchased a turret press and want to make use of the primeing tool on it
    How do people clean them on full progressive presses

    I used a solvent soaked rag when loading on my progressive but that probably blasphemy.
    You can also get some carbide dies I think.
