I'm still amazed at the colour of the water when I pour it down the sink (which is a bit of worry as this sink just goes out into the garden) of how black the water is.

All that muck used to just stay in my dry tumbler, load after load after load and I was one to r-e-a-l-l-y stretch out for years changing my dry media.

 

@Texas Maverick That's great that you've done nickel and brass together with great results, congrats mate! Like @Eyesa Horg I've had just one nickel case amongst hundreds of brass and the whole lot went black and gunky.

Yep, it is very dirty water. It takes a couple of rinses to get it where the water is finally clear after the tumbling.

Not so sure I would let that dirty water go to the garden. Lead residue from the primers is in that water.  

 

I'd dump it somewhere else.
