    Hello the fire,


    I have tried dry media tumbling, wet tumbling with stainless steel mix of shapes and have settled on wet media with 3mm ceramic balls. I also use Dawn and instead of any commercial product, just a 1/8 to 14 teaspoon of citric acid. I use a 3 pound tumbler and run brass that has been rinsed to get the grit and large chunks of dirt off. Running it for about 3 hours with a timer makes it come out looking brand new. I have radiant heat floor so I put the rinsed and drained brass in a screened tray and just leave it for a few days on the floor. This works for me, others may do what works for them.




    OH-LORD, forgive me for what I'm about to ask. :lol:

    Where did you get your ceramic balls?

    Believe you mean 0.2 grains variance.   It would be a VERY RARE powder measure that could hold 0.02 grains variance.  Many individual granules of powders weigh more than 0.02 grains! 


    Most loading scales, digital or mechanical, can't measure closer than 0.1 grain +/- reliably.   Not that they need to - most loads do not require that much accuracy of powder charge.


    An extra or missing zero after a decimal point makes a difference.


    Good luck, GJ




    You're 'rite'- 

    Fat fingers on small keyboard .....

    +/- 0.2

    45 colt. My ammo is 200 g rnfp with 4.5 g of red dot. Yep , it is sort of a dirty load but it works for me. 

    after I get the mag tube shinty clean, I will coat the tube with balistol then run an oily patch thru the tube so that oil does not drip everywhere when storing the gun upright 


    Get away from that Balistol.

    I won't let near my guns.

    Try Eezox....

    Prevention to the problem is what I am trying to get help with.




    Tell us the caliber and load.

    When you finish with the brush, run a oily patch.

    That would be .2 gr and in percentage terms would be about 4% reduction. I didn't shoot 4.9 and 4.7 in the same outing for a genuine comparison but felt like the 4.7 was different than I remembered. I know I didn't have the impression that I could reduce the 4.7 like I did for 4.9 and that I could just go with it for now. The Titegroup is only a test, while my current match ammo is HP38.


    Most power measures will very +/- .02 gn, all day long.

    WW231/HP38 is a far better choice of powder IMO.

    Bring 'eyes & ears' and folks will supply the rest.

    Might want to bring a bx of 12ga ammo in #7 or 8 shot size.

    You can inspect map itself at:



    I can tell you that the map is accurate and current with today's report of cases in the state of NM.  Other states - you can validate that data yourself with a little effort.


    Good luck, GJ


    It's NY Times, and you have to subscribe to see it.

    Not sure I'd believe anything they would publish anyway.
