Between the lack of hassle, individually cleaning brass, and the added benefit of prolonging die performance, it does sound like tumbler might be a sound investment.
I don't reload masses: the most brass I have is about 220 .44 mag cases. My .38s number at about 160 or so. If I'm to avoid tumbling them together, I can afford to get only a medium capacity tumbler some pf the cases are always either in made up ammo, primed cases or spent cases...
I have a few options from UK reloading outfits. The place I've been to most so far seems to stock Lyman tumblers. They seem to go for about £70-100. There are also some options more locally from the same places that sell media.
Thanks for shedding light....
