OK an update to boiled brass, an alternative

Have finished my third tumbler full of brass,,
1. This works, its unbelievable the dirt that comes out of even pre tumbled (with corn cob) brass.
2. I still have to get a better way to separate the brass and the SSt media
read that faster I will probably buy the media tumbler in the video.
3. I now pre heat the oven to 240 degrees and with the brass in a metal strainer, put in the oven after an hour remove, let cool and you will have spotless dry brass,
you can probably heat for less time will have to experiment with that.
4. I am using a strong magnet to pull the media out of the very dirty water and while still on the magnet rinse and you don't loose any and it is clean.
The media will fall out of the brass with a water rinse if you have a way to tumble .

awesome. I just spent 150$ on a really nice hornady vibratory tumbler. haha.

Well, my reloads still work so i guess i'm OK; the aesthetics don't mean all that much to me. only a little

I only reload handgun cartridges anyhow. If i were reloading rifle cartridges, I might upgrade anyway.

I was just gonna stick with my vibratory....

... but I got some brass from Xfire68....once, twice, three....

....And just had to get a rotary with stainless.... so my rifle brass would quit teasing my pistol brass(about how clean they are)

...I want all my brass to get along
