Add your trick or tip

#1 NEVER buy media. I go to PETCO and buy 10 quarts of "Lizzard Litter" for 10 bucks and add a squirt of brasso.

Check the search engine-- we have a thread that is many, MANY pages long with tips like these. Great reading. It used to be "stickied" to the top, but they unstickied it to reduce clutter.
Attention Brass rats and other reloaders: I really need .327 Federal Magnum brass, no lot size too small. Tell me what caliber you need and I'll see what I have to swap. PM me and we'll discuss.

Brasso contains ammonia, and will weaken brass cases. I would use a different polishing compound.

+1 (or -1) no brasso. FWIW tumbling media is by far the least expence in reloading, but glad it works for you.
