She was not real amused, so I took it outside.

OOOHH! That looks like the perfect sized rack to stand those 200 grain .311 cast bullets in. Helps keep them upright in the pan while the powder coating bakes.

However, If you do that and she's doing this in the back yard, :digging: You might want to lay low for a while. RD

That happened to me once. Now I have my own set of kitchen utensils in my basement loading room. I like to citric acid bath my brass.

Nice, Ed. What is your formula/recipe? I've been using the Armor All wash n wax, hot water, and a tablespoon or so of the lemishine. I've thought about actual boiling with the assumption it would dry out well with it's own heat. I've baked them in the oven at various temps (185-220) for 10-20 minutes but it does discolor the brass a bit. I'm not TOO concerned that my brass has to be super clean and shiny but ...

I don't really have an exact recipe. A small scoop of Lemishine and a couple drops of Dawn dish soap in a pan of hot water. I don't actually boil them, just get the water hot. Use a glass pan and swirl them around for a few minutes with a plastic spoon. I have a utility sink across the room from the bench so I pour them through the colander and then rinse in cold water. I dump them out on an old bath towel and towel them off then put them in a walnut media tumbler to dry them. It only takes about 30 minutes.

I deprime before sizing with a universal depriming die so the cases drain better. I use the Zilla brand reptile bedding walnut media. It's finer ground than the loading media so it doesn't stick in flash holes. It's also cheaper and the look on the kids face at the pet store when they ask what kind of a lizard you have and you say, "a Glock" is priceless.

I have found a bit less of both the lemi-shine and actually using Dawn works best.
a quarter tsp [MK-1 eyeball] of the lemi-shine and a tsp of Dawn in a gallong of real hot water seems to pull more gunk out of the cases.
to dry them I toss them in the walnut media and tumble them for 1.5 hrs.
that's where the nu-finish part comes in.

a different batch of media is used to remove the case lube.

I have found also that if you are just air drying the brass, when you go to the range look for pistol round holders that are open on the bottom. These have an X pattern to the bottom and allow the water to drip out and air dry inside the brass.

The brass is looking good Katydid, hows the press working out for you?

My redneck primer pocket cleaner. I haven't bought a prep station yet so I do this before running them through wet cleaning and it really helps the primer pockets. I also do the same with my chamfer and debur tool, mount them in the drill, run it at a low rpm (nice thing about a $15 Harbor Freight drill) it saves having to turn it all by hand.

Nice! I love the turret press! And the auto drum! Sort of liking the look of the Lyman case prep "center" that rotates five tools at once ... but $100 is steep. I don't mind sitting at the kitchen table prepping the brass by hand ...
