Vibrating loaded cartridges

Wow, I haven't ever put loaded cartridges in the vibrating machine but, if you say so, I guess it's okay

RE: Vibrating loaded cartridges

I do it all the time, especially for rifle cartridges. I keep some clean walnut media just for that purpose. My normal media has some rouge in it for polishing the brass,  but the rouge would also get on the bullets, possibly causing premature wear on the barrel as the bullets travel down. For this reason, I use plain crushed walnut shells for finished rounds. It doesn't take long, and is great for removing the lubricants that may still be on the brass. I usually run it 30 minutes for complete rounds.
