Stainless Steel Deluxe Reloading Kit

Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2014):
I have been reloading for 33 years and this system works hands down better than any I have ever used and I think I have used every product manufactured to date. I received this product on March 19th 2014 and it has been in continuous use since. I have learned a couple of things that make the cleaning more efficient for large volume case cleaning. I have tens of thousands of pieces of brass that have been donated to me over the years. I think I have brass from every war from WWI to present.

1. Presort brass by caliber then each caliber by level of dirtiness. I use three buckets. In one bucket sort the fresh truly once fired brass that you can see brass on the inside of the case. Second bucket gets shiny on outside and moderate carbon on inside and the last bucket is for the stuff that you would normally throw in the recycle.
2. I premix the cleaning solution in a clear one gallon water bottles I buy for use in my coffee maker. I usually let the mix sit 24 to 36 hours until the cleaning solution takes on a opaque pearlescent color. I find this shortens the cleaning time in half compared to mixing in the barrel just before tumbling.
3. For the barely dirty brass the instructions for loading the barrel work at 5 pounds pins and 4 pounds brass. Tumble time as stated in instructions. For the medium dirty brass keep everything the same but reduce brass to 3 pounds and change out the water after 2 hours then tumble 2 more hours. For the really nasty stuff with head stamps from the 30's and 40's I use 3 pounds brass and tumble for 3 hours change out the water then tumble through the night and rinse it before work. Then I throw in another batch and tumble that while at work, come home and change the water then tumble for one hour and rinse.
4. If its Friday night and the drive belt breaks, go to the hardware store and get a water filter o ring. The package I picked up was made by whirlpool 3.44"x.14". It looks wimpy but it will work till you get the proper one as shipping is fast from this company.

The brass (even the nasty stuff) comes out with a mirror like finish inside and out and is so clean that there is as close to zero surface tension on the brass as you can get. Water wont even stick to it. Make the final rinse super hot water out of the tap, drain and wrap in a towel and shake back and forth for 30 seconds. Bottle neck rifle cartridges I set on paper plates on the dining room table overnight and the insides are dry. It saves time by cleaning the primer pockets and flash holes and my belief is that ammunition loaded with brass this clean wont have any degradation over time due to the possibility of contamination. This means if you load it when your 20 it should be good to shoot when your 70.

This product is a must have and worth the money spent!
