Re: Dull sticky brass after wet tumbling (?)

Well, maybe a stupid question on my part...but did you rinse the brass in clean water to get the soap off? :?
I occasionally use a wet tumbler, pins, lemishine, and dawn just as you describe. I find I need a clean water rinse or even a couple. That water is pretty dirty.

Re: Step 1, clean brass in tumbler (How?)

If you have a Grainger near you, a 40# bag of corn cob is about $35 last time I looked.
That's years worth of media for most of us, a little squirt of Nu Finish or similar, (I use a 3M auto polishing compound), lasts a long time.
I have my tumbler on a timer, 3 hours makes very nice shiny brass.

Re: I'm back (total nube, I know) Die problem?

Agree you need better lube. Clean out the die, and get some Imperial sizing wax, my favorite. That little tin will last a loooooooong time.
You shouldn't have to grit your teeth to push a case into the die.

Re: Best way to utize bench space? A perfect layout?

I'll throw in my 2 cents... Since you are just getting started, I'd mount those presses to a couple hunks of wood, and attach them to the bench with clamps. That way, you can move them around as you find what works for you. I know my bench has a *few* extra holes in it, where I had presses mounted a...

Re: Prone at OGC?

I also stay on the concrete, usually just pushing the benches apart enough for me to lay between them. I use a padded shooting mat, so the dirt doesn't bother me.
I'm shooting an appleseed next month, maybe I should go practice a bit, hmmmmm.

Re: Chronograph at Oakdale

I've used my chrono at OGC on the short range many times with no issues. Just have to place it where equal light can hit both sensors. Lesson-watch those overhead baffles ;)
