Do you have a dry tumbler? I say Clean brass is by far the most important. Dirty brass (IN my opin) will dirty up the chamber of a gun. Granted you clean your gun after shooting (or you should).

Crony would be nice to have tho.

If you all ready have a dry tumble: Buy the crony...
If you don't have any tumble: The wet tumble

Thats what I would do...

returned for new

I have scratched carbide/ti sizers from Dillon and Hornady from uncleaned cases.

IMO a chronograph is nice, a case cleaner is mandatory.

While I respect Brian's opinion, in this case we do not agree. I would rather keep my dies clean by cleaning my brass, but that can be done without a tumbler, but I find a tumbler easier to use.

As to a chrony, I have never used one and do not care at what speed the bullet will reach a target at as long as it is accurate (that's what I shoot for, pun intended) LOL.

So I have to agree with Weshoot2 on this.
