    I just dump about 20 mixed cases from my tumbler into my hand, jostle them a little, and the tall .45 Colt cases stick up for easy picking out from the rest of the cases.  This is definitely a first world problem.  GJ

     

    got that right

    The Lewis Lead Remover is a kit that uses brass screens to remove the lead.

    a poor man's version of this

    ordered brass 1" pipe filters (Amazon, where else?)  see below for one link

    run a very wet patch through the bore and let it sit for 20 minutes

    then put it on a metal jag that has a point on it.  

    have to bang the end of the cleaning rod with my hand a couple of times to get it started.  the filter will form fit around the jag. 

    ▲ a bore guide on your rod is a great idea here

    Being brass it's softer than the steel barrel

    then scrub back and forth in the barrel

    you can put pressure on the cleaning rod to do one side or another to get any remaining lead out

    couple of clean patches and Bob's your uncle
