Wipe them down. If the insides are dirty I throw them away.


BTW, no offense intended, but I really dislike picking up hulls that have been sprayed or wiped with a lubricant. Now I have that slick crap on my hands.

Exactly! I also hate picking up hulls with any slick on 'em. After trying lots of slick stuff thru the years, my tried & true is to brush the chambers after every stage & then hit 'em with a 3x3 patch wrapped around a wire brush. This method has been working well for Ophia & me for years. When loading, I twist the hull with a dry microfiber & drop them in the EWG 6 hole checker. If they don't drop in & out easily, I drop them in the trash. I check the finished shotshells again when loading them on the belt at every stage. If they don't pass, they go in the practice pile.
