Thread: Rounds in the washing

  1. #1

    Rounds in the washing

    I have two rounds which accidentally went into the wash with my jacket. What would you suggest I do with them?

    I was thinking pull them and discard powder, deprime and load again.

    Or could they safely be fired?

    As long as you didn't use conditioner they shouldn't be too soft. Just out of interest did the brass come up as good as tumbling

    Don't fire them. Tumbling in the washer can break the powder down into smaller faster burning grains, resulting in much higher pressures. This has happened to people who put tarnished live rounds in a case tumbler.

    Pull and start again (use the dry cleaners next time Lol)
    If it ain't broke don't fiddle with it!
    Not even a little..........................(unless you can fix it, properly fix it, working and PROPPER working!!)

    Definitely air on the side of caution and pull them.
