    Done it. Same reason, to clean and polish some aging WWII ammo. It's highly unlikely that the tip of a bullet, in a confined space packed with tumbling media, could strike a primer hard enough to set it off. Consider how hard a firing pin strikes or the primer doesn't ignite.

    Having said that, I wouldn't sit there and watch it go round and round. As in everything in life, anything you voluntarily do is at your own risk.
