  1. Thanks, look forward to seeing how well it does. Dave
  2. Judging by my internet search for "blasting grit" I'd say you'd have to see if it would get into the case and primer pockets well enough to clean but not get stuck in the case. If it looks like it will work, give it a try. I'm sure people here would appreciate seeing what your results are. Most people that use ss pins are always looking for a better way. Getting the pins separated from the brass is a common complaint. Many have started just wet tumbling without the pins. Personally I just use a Harbor Freight magnet. Dave
  3. Frankford Arsenal Rotary Tumbler. Dave
  4. Didn't see the $20 shipping but they I know they are discounting plated bullets 10% at this point. Still my favorite bullets. If I didn't already have over a year's supply I'd order. I don't think my shed floor can handle any more weight. Dave
  5. I never had a problem getting my X-Treme order in a timely manner. Last order for 4K was placed 7/24 and rec'd 8/2. That was with free shipping. I like the product. The problem now is that even with a discount, $30 shipping is too much. Dave
  6. Got this a short time ago. https://us13.campaign-archive.com/?e=796367187a&u=4e07b127155a70baccdf19cb3&id=43ab3fa9c6 Dave
  7. Do you recall if they are still charging $30 shipping? That's what had me looking for another supplier on my last order. Dave
  8. I use a Lee Universal Decapping die on a dedicated turret on my Classic Turret press before wet tumbling. Dave
  9. I ordered 4K of plated 115g 9mm at the end of July and got them August 2, so no issues as far as price or shipping. I also got free shipping with that order. Haven't ordered since because free shipping has gone away, unless you're a first time buyer. I don't mind paying shipping, but X-Treme's is $30 and I can get much more reasonable shipping from Powder Valley or Graf with Berry's. I've also gotten free shipping with Rocky Mountain Reloading. Dave
  10. That is a really clever solution! Dave
  11. Thanks for pointing that out. Guess it's not that much of a special after all. I get emails from the different shooting sites but don't look at Amazon very often. Guess I should start. Dave
  12. Just got an email from Midsouth. For anyone interested they have the FA kit on sale for 159.99. https://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/item/00122909544/frankford-arsenal-platinum-series-rotary-tumbler-(stainless-steel-media-tumbler)?trk_msg=9NH9AJ105AOKNF00D414S7SBS4&trk_contact=F1BJ9NV17FM95502PRCDJ803LK&trk_sid=3N69JTN52UHJOG2ULF4QVOLS3G&utm_source=listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=turn+on+images+and+shop+frankford+arsenal+tumbler&utm_campaign=Get+This+Case+Tumbler+Today! That's about the best I've seen since I got mine for 120.00 last year at Cabela's. Don't know if they'll bring that sale back for Christmas or not. Dave
  13. In the warmer months I put the cases on a towel and dry them outside. Takes a couple of hours in the sun, longer on a cloudy day. In the winter months I spread the cases on a towel on my work bench and have an old window fan that I turn on them for a couple of hours. Then I usually let them sit on the towel for a couple of more hours. I stay ahead of my reloading and cleaning so I always have plenty of clean dry brass. No need to put it in the oven or dryer to hurry things up. Dave
  14. I just got a magnet from Harbor Freight for about $2. About 1/4" thick and maybe 1 1/2" round. They may vary from store to store. I put mine in a small plastic bag to when picking up the pins. It helps to get them off the magnet. I've heard the large FA magnet works well. Some folks have had rust issues. Dave
