    media seperators

    I have been looking for a media seperator tonight and was wondering can you just buy the cage to put the bass in to seperate the media used to clean them?

    Yes, you can get a media separator from Midway USA (Shop Shooting Supplies | Reloading | Gunsmithing | Hunting gear ? MidwayUSA), or Berry's Mfg (Berry's Manufacturing ? Over 50 Styles of Plated Bullets). They work very well. I have the one from Berry's.

    I use this with an appropriately-sized bucket to separate the polishing media from my brass. Cheap and effective.

    I cheaped out and got a big plastic strainer from either WalMart or the dollar store. Might work for you at a fraction of the cost, though there is still a bit of case dumping you need to do.

    I have the RCBS one. Not overly impressed with. The plastic hinges always seem on the verge of breaking.

    This is the same way I went. It takes a little more sifting, but hard to beat for the price!

    I also use a simple one, it came with my polisher from Cabela's. It works. As with all of them you do have to do a bit of case dumping, especially with rifle cartridges. Maybe one of those hand crank contraptions would be easier... I'm too cheap to spend any money to find out.

    I bought the Berry's "kit", as I needed another vibratory cleaner anyway. It came with the small size corncob, and the clamshell seperator and the "tub" that the clamshell fits in. Best $99 I ever spent. The cleaner works so much better than the last two Lymans, and the RCBS that I have used in the last 30+ years. And the seperator is well worth purchasing, it drops all the media out of a buttload of rifle cases in just a few turns. I will buy another to streamline my "processes".

    Some 2x2s and rabbit wire work great.
