    i think i just did something really dumb

    So I just finished cleaning some 40 brass using dillion rapid polish in tumbler.

    I threw it in the tumbler and started pullin my dillion. I had some older brass in the case feeder but threw the newly shiny brass on top. After about the 60 load i(checking) every tenth on the powder scale I noticed the one I was weighing had some gunky media in the bottom that was a little moist. I then started weighing each load and started seeing other cases with a little gunk in them.

    Crap!!!!!!!!!

    Time to start pulling bullets,the moisture will definitely cause the rounds to misfire,didn't you have some kind of media in the tumbler.I don't use polish the media gets them clean enough and I'm not trying to win any beauty contests with my ammo

    Yeah I was using very fine Walnut media. The rapid polish clumbed with the media and ended up in the cases.

    Next time try NU-FINISH car POLISH ! Not the Nu-Finish car wax!!!!

    Just one cap full in a tumbler will have your brass looking better than new and it wont clump up on ya .


    P.S.---throw in a dryer sheet to filter out the crud.
