I'm going to purchase a tumbler for reloading .308 rounds. First of all, will the tumbler clean the inside of the cartridge and the primer hole? And can somebody suggest the best all around tumbler? The price seems to vary between brands greatly. Thanks.

I suggest a LYMAN Turbo-Twin, very durable and the firm is a beaut to deal with too... and I'd leave those primers in and do them by hand, as corncob media especially will plug them, [a bit of a nuisance only.]

The inside will need a neck-brush only afterwards usually, as it does such a good job in only an hour or so.

You should look at Cabela's, they have a Model Bl-12 comes in a kit with media and media seperator. Got mine last year, was about $70 with shipping.

Can't beat their stuff.

I have a Lyman and a Midway. Your choice really. Both of these companies are A-1 to deal with. Can't beat their service.

Thanks for all of the advice folks. I ordered the Lyman Turbo Twin. It will be here Tuesday. Cabelas was out of the kit special they were advertising, so impatient me went ahead and ordered the Lyman. Still a good deal.
