    Thatís how I USED to do it, that is until there was a live one mixed in. Scared the heck out of my chihuahua.
    I donít do the wood stove drying now.

    De-prime and run through the Hornady tumbler for 2 hours with a squirt of Dawn and a teaspoon of Lemi-Shine. When done I pour off the excess water and then pour the brass and steel pins into the Hornady tumbler with the plastic shield so pins don't go flying everywhere. When I'm done 20 seconds later, I put the brass in a food dehydrator that may have cost $10 new a wally world. After 30mins of doing something else I come along and the brass is dry as a bone. If I get water spots...and if I really want pretty brass that day...I'll soak a towel in alcohol and wipe down...but I rarely do that.

    The only time I really make the brass as super shiny as possible is when I go shoot ELR...and people ask what ammo I have...I say it's some stuff I bought at the store that says it is supposed to be great...they shake their head and walk away. Later they wonder how I shot so well with factory ammo....heh
