    Anyone wet tumble ?!?

    Hi,
    been hearing that wet tumbling is all the rage for shiny brass...

    i normally use the nut shell approach after decaping ...

    Is it that much better ???

    ​cheers

    Stainless is superb. Quicker and better results.

    You need a tumbler and stainless media with a drop of clearbrite in.

    It cost a bit to get set up but excellent results once you're up and running.
    You'll need some sort of rotary tumbler that can carry a waterproof canister and some stainless steel pins also some cleaning fluid.

    Interesting, do you have first hand experience with this and where can you get stainless media and clearbrite from, cheers.
    And yet another 7mm-08 user...

    Normal tumbling media with a good splash of brasso works very well!

    The question is, how shiny/clean does your brass really need to be ? I doubt that there is any detectable functional difference between uncleaned brass (with a wipe over to remove external grot, scrape or brush primer pockets, brush inside neck with old bore brush) and tumbled, ultrasonic, ceramic media, or SS pin wet tumbled. If you are already set up with a traditional dry tumbler its hard to see what advantage there is to be gained, for the cost, unless you just like very very shiny things. As with ultrasonic you also need some way of drying the wet cases, which obviously needs to be 100% certain.
