Drying the brass
Takes slightly more time, but I rack up the brass in plastic cartridge holders after shaking in a towel and rolling on the towel. Brass is placed mouth down in skeletonized plastic trays I’ve collected over the years. Trays are placed on a bed/towel/table/whatever and generally the brass is dry by the next day. With the case heads facing up, it is quick work to sort by headstamp.
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.
