As LLoyd pointed out more tumble time will give you a better coating and he is right. More time is not a problem when a machine is doing the work, but shanking a handful of bullets in a tub for 15 minutes is not high on my list. I found back in 2012 tumbling did a better job, gave me the quanity of bullets I needed, was faster and with a lot less effort.
