    I'm gonna run these as fast as I can out of a 6" barrel with Longshot and see how they do as a hunting round.

    Agreed, however they definately slide easier into magazines when loading and I am sure they feed easier into the chamber.

    I sometimes use a little lube on my bigger cases, just a touch. Although not magazine loaded, it helps with my .357.

    I'll take a chamber not scratched by grit sticking to my brass over any perceived benefit of lube on cases.
    People who say it can't be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

    If you want to lube your bullets, lightly spray them with silicone. Tip from Jerry Miculek.

    Wow!

    Lyman 1200 Turbo
    FA Corn Cob Media
    FA Brass Polish
    3x fired .243 Win and .44 Mag Brass
    3.5 hours





    As mentioned, I mostly got this for my handgun brass and Range pick up brass. But, as some here mentioned and the reviews suggested, the more full the hopper, the better the results. Therefore, I'm polishing/cleaning batches of handgun brass and throwing rifle brass in for filler. Seems to be working pretty darn well!!

    Careful with the brass cleaner, some of it contains ammonia which weakens brass.

    Thanks for the heads up, though.

    Avoid Brasso.

    Use stuff made for firearms.

    It's one area where home brewed or a non-firearm substitute could get you into trouble.
