    The 2 on the left are new untouched starlines from the bag, and 2 on the right are 3 fired pin tumbled then dry tumbed in nu finish a half year ago in december. New cases are tiny bit more golden colored and tumbled cases bit whiter luster.

    the way I described after the wet tumble I just put the wet cases in the middle of a bath towel and grab the ends and roll them back and forth inside to dry the outside and any drops of water besides a bit of wet surface inside gets absorbed by the...

    ya pc kinda makes it so it don't really matter which way you go about it. can go completely dry, sometimes I smear tumble lube on wax paper then roll the pc boolits on in before sizing and it makes sizing and loading feel a little bit smoother, and...
