Not really, I tumble with the old primers still in the cases. When I'm done with that I have an RCBS case prep station that has a steele brush to clean large and small pockets. One thing I have not tried, but seems to be getting very popular, is "Wet Tumbling". There are some videos on ******* and many people swear by it. I stopped cleaning primer pockets along time ago for my target loads. I live in Northern Virginia and the longest public range are indoor shooting ranges going out to 50 yards. Doing all that case prep only to shoot 50 yards started to seem very unnecessary.

swimming pool cleaner???

Tumbling in ceramic with a small amount of water and vingar makes the pockets as clean as the rest of the case, no need for a brush.

Dusty,

Are you talking about using the stuff from Swimway? In dry media or in ceramic

It's from "cleanmybrass.com" (?). It's for ultrasonic.

Lift up your foot and inspect the boot print on your Johnson.

The longest range in Northern Virginia is at Quantico Marine Base Range #4. It is set at 100 yard increments out to 1000 yards and is open to the public on specified days. I will be there on Saturday to see some of my buddies.

In as far as the original thought of the thread, I would merely remind people that sidewall friction in moderation is a good thing to reduce bolt thrust and if your loads are over max then highly polished brass may create a problem with excessive bolt thrust.

Like it shiney!

I don't run hot loads with Nitro. Most of my loading is done with BP and the requirement there is a full case, no air gap. Depending on bullet length and seating depth I use charges that vary as much as 15 grains in my 45-110.
