  1. OH WISE SAGE!! I'll check on Starline as a couple said they had 45-60 bras. I can not conceive the necessity of annealing new brass.. Doc

    X2 on Starline.

    Make sure you anneal before loading.

    I use Starline in ALL my cowboy guns, have thousands. Why the heck should I have to anneal them before loading? I would think it legal quicksand to sell brass not ready to load. I will only be using lead or coated lead and SMOKELESS powder, probably Trail Boss.

  2. Yo Lumpy" I have not used Unique for quite some time but would like to try your load for .38's and I use TCFP 105 / 125.  Currently using Clay's powder.

     

    Appreciate this if possible.

     

    Thanks Jackrabbit Joe #414

      Yes it could in some ways, with the flakes that get all of the media attention.

      The real folks of Colorado are still the same.;)

  5. Lumpy do you use a stainless steel tumbler with the ceramic and do you add water?  Please describe your ceramic cleaning process.  Thanks

      I use a thumler mod B low speed tumbler.

      Use Dave Maurer ceramic media. Put in media, add water till just below media with a 1/4 TSP of Dawn dish soap. Add cases and let it run for about 2hrs.

      Rinse in COLD water and let air dry on towel.

      Rinse media and let it dry......

      That's it.

      You can buy the tumbler and media with 'soap' as a 'kit' from Shiloh Sharps.
